Hoffman Harvesting continues harvest in Olney
Wednesday, June 12
Today, Kaidence and I took a little tour with Kelly that didn’t include wheat fields.
She took us out to the pasture their cattle are grazing on.
The sight is quite different than home with the mesquite trees, red dirt, cactus and other wild plants I can’t remember the names of growing in their pasture.
Our Olney wheat harvest is quickly coming together and will soon come to a close.
Since Mike’s bins are full, we are hauling wheat to Fort Worth and Megargel’s elevators.

Hoffman Harvesting has been off the grid for a little while but it is for very good reasons. Not often do we drop everything in the midst of harvest—weddings and birthdays included—to take a flight home. However, a very important test had me driving to Dallas to take Leon to the airport.
After seven years of marriage and more paperwork thicker than any of the several books I have ever read in my life, Leon was approved to take his citizenship test. While this wasn’t the ideal time to be studying and taking time off work, he was basically at the mercy of the government. While in Sioux Falls, Leon was thoroughly interviewed, given a history test, a spelling test, and a written test. Leon did pass his test; however, he will not be sworn in as a U.S. citizen until later this year.
Upon his return from Sioux Falls, Leon, Kaidence and I returned to Olney to settle up with the Campbells. While away the crew finished our last 200 acres.
