August 8, 2013
The 2013 harvest is fast upon us.
In May, the forcast for a 2013 harvest at all was bleak at best. We went through the entire month of May, typically our rainy season, with absolutely zero rainfall until the very last week of the month. Much of our continuous cropped acres suffered due to drought, but what remained made a boastfull come back as we have now had a moisture event nearly every week since. As harvest rolls near, the combines are ready, crops are almost ready, but the rain continues to fall on Mattson Farms, making us wonder how late harvest might end up being. With every storm cloud, also comes the liklihood of the much dreaded hail storm. So far we have been lucky, with only a few fields getting hit, but the white combine has taken many fields around us.
As of the second week in August begins, we have finished our green pea crop harvest and are impatiently waiting for our winter wheat harvest to begin. The crop looks beautiful, so we are anxious to get into the field. Also, with fall planting not far away, we are once again looking at the potential of performing both harvest and planting operations at the same time.
