Excitement has always accompanied grain harvest

One crop that took priority on the minds of our early settlers was that of grain. It meant their very existence. Wheat was both feed and flour for their homes, barley and oats for both themselves and their animals. Early residents worked hard to get water to those fields, although some were dryland crops and totally dependent on water sent from above. As the hot days of summer turned the green fields to various shades of tan and amber, the hard working owners of their land got ready for threshing time.
