How This Farm Wife Gets Through Harvest | Nurse Loves Farmer

Wheat Harvest

This is my 10th harvest season as a farm wife, and it also marks my 7th harvest season as a mom. My role on the farm has evolved over those years from only worrying about myself and working as much as I wanted at the hospital, having combine dates at any time of the day or night, and going out for late night coffee runs to fuel the harvest crew when we were first married. This transformed to taking an annual break from work as a nurse in the fall and being home alone for 6 or more weeks with a baby, and now I have 3 to care for. I have become a harvest meal-maker and dessert-baker, sometimes cooking for a crew, family members and guests of 20 or more people at times.
