Can you believe that I am still waiting for my main computer from a shop that prides itself on a two day, or less, return? Today is day 15. Sigh!
Meanwhile, out in the nearby fields . . .
Here is a closer look at some horseradish plants.
The first step in harvesting this root crop is to get rid of the tops. The tops are cut, shredded, and blown back onto the field.
Next, this large machine is pulled by another tractor over the rows. The roots are dug up, dirt shaken off, and then two individuals are doing something to the roots as the machine moves the roots to them. Maybe they are sorting? I really don't know.
They are then loaded into a truck or trailer and moved on to some unknown location. I think I need to follow both the soybeans and horseradish roots further along to see what happens next.
