Rosanna wrote about harvest time in last week’s column. 

I thought I’d share a few more photos from this special time when everyone rolls up their sleeves and works from dawn to dusk.  From the youngest to the oldest, everyone chips in. Speaking of youngest to oldest, this is Rosanna’s 2-year-old niece, Ava, resting with her great grandfather who was in the hospital recovering from a fall.  Nothing like the exuberance of youth as an elixir for the ailing.  And then below are some other scenes from harvest, including Ava standing in the glass-enclosed “control room” of the combine as it moves through the fields.  This is Rosanna brother and Ava’s father, Marvin, operating the equipment.

  1. Really enjoyed the pictures. Hope great-grandfather is better soon. Is Rosanna Amish? What makes me wonder is that they allow pictures.

    • Thanks, Marilyn! No, Rosanna is German Baptist, a branch of the Brethren church. It is a Plain church similar to the Amish, but they allow photos and more technology.

    • Susan, I’ll ask Rosanna. Does anyone else know if a child can ride in a closed cab combine?
