Call in the Professionals

Remember the combine we bought? And the time we put into fixing it?

It did a pretty solid job of combining our pinto beans. And the heirloom beans, which we had to pull by hand (don't ask) because of weeds (don't ask) were fed nicely through the combine, which removes the beans from the plant and the pod.

There was one thing, though, that the guys couldn't seem to fix. The head didn't go up and down smoothly. Sometimes it didn't go up and down at all. You had to baby it, and couldn't depend on it. So now, between bean harvest and corn harvest, they decided to call in a professional.

Sometimes it's worth paying someone who knows what they're doing. Works like a charm! Ready for corn harvest, which should start any day.

  1. Bummer on calling in the pros but glad it helped and you are ready to go. We have our corn done but can't really feel done as 2 custom neighbors are not ready for us. Hoping for this week! Be safe!
