Swathing Grass Seed
Photographer: My Grandmother
Place: Silverton, Oregon / USA
Crop Type: Chewings Fescue
Machine: 2280 John Deere Windrower
Date: July 5, 1993
Description:
This is a picture of one of my uncles opening up a field of
grass seed. This picture was taken just prior to dusk. All
of the grass seed on this particular farm is windrowed prior
to harvest at dusk and during the night. It is done at
night because there is less risk of the seed shattering out
of the heads. It may depend on the variety, but most of the
grass seed I'm familiar with is windrowed approximately a
month after pollination. The windrow is then allowed to dry
for a week or so and then it is combined.

The windrower in the foreground is being operated by another
uncle of mine and looked kind of neat looking into the
sunset. Hopefully we'll all be able to stay awake and cut
nice straight windrows, even in the dark!

I wish everyone was so conscientious about labelling their
pictures! :-)

P.S. Another nice series...

Description:
Dusk is approaching, and one of my uncles begins the nights
work by opening up the field. It's quite a bit more
challenging to drive straight in the dark when opening up
the new lands!
