This page contains several pictures I took while visiting

during wheat harvest. My sincere thanks to 5M Farms for
allowing me to wander around their fields at will, enjoying
the beautiful scenery.

A close up of a 5M Farms combine. The green flag above is
to identify the driver. Since they have three machines that
look exactly alike, they identify the driver by a green,
blue, and red flag.

Most of the guys I've talked to say that three machines for
harvest is less efficient than two machines. Here they try
to make the best of it, all heading different directions on
the same piece.

In the background is an old fence row, now buried in a drop
off on the hill. My host explained to me that many years
ago, there wasn't this drop off. On the upper side their
neighbor farms the property. After years and years of
tilling, both farmers pulling dirt down the hill, this ridge
resulted. With modern tillage methods, there is less
disturbance of the soil, so it is less likely that this will
occur in the future.

Palouse wheat harvest. A closer up version of the previous
picture. I stood in this spot for over one hour without
moving. The temperature was perfect (mid 70 degree range),
and the scenery absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could
take better pictures to better depict it. Even a bee that
wandered by to sting me in the neck couldn't dampen the
simple pleasure of observing the harvest from the hill.

would still be viable. Even the cistern is still in place.
