Last week I talked about the elevator I purchased to use in the seed processing line. Here's a photo of it in action:
|Brian's newly purchased elevator sends pumpkins on their final journey, and into the Vine Harvester.|
A picture of the business end of the Vine Harvester:
|The Vine Harvester machine makes quick work of our pumpkin harvest as it separates the seeds from the pulp.|
Seed crops we use this machine on include pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons and peppers -- basically any crop that is wet seeded. It speeds up the seed separation process considerably.
And lastly, as I was driving back from the sluice area last Friday I snapped this picture below:
|Clover, sown between the cornrows, makes a great cover crop.|
Until next week, Brian
