We began harvest on Friday, July 1st with our one softneck variety, NY White. Since then we have finished harvesting 5 more varieties (Metechi, Asian Tempest, Music, Great Northern White, and Bogatyr) with help of some great friends and family. Before harvest started, we spent a day constructing a set of stairs to get into the drying barn and also our wire grid system for hanging the bundles of 10 to dry. We learned 14 ga electric fence wire over a 28 foot span needs some reinforcing. We've also recently learned how to count bulbs and tie knots really fast. Our Bed Shaper has been converted into bed lifter for the mean time and looks to need some gauge wheels to help control the depth of cut. It takes quick and frequent adjusting of the tractor lever to maintain the proper depth.
