Still No Harvest

Combines have begun working all around us, now that things are drying up from the recent monsoon season. We do not have tracks to put on our combine, so we wait for further drying, or for a neighbor to finish with his fields so that we can hire him (and his tracks) to do the job.

It's a difficult time, knowing the snow (which will make harvesting impossible) will come soon, yet having to wait. There is plenty to do, but the thought is always there--will we get it off? Last year an entire field of corn had to be left in the fields, and was winter fodder for the deer. Nothing was left, come spring.

The weatherman predicts dry and warm. Perfect weather. Here's hoping...
