The Corn Is In!

I've been dreadfully neglectful of blogging this summer/fall. Something about being so busy doing that I don't have time to document (with a little writer's block sprinkled in, if I'm honest).

If you ride through our corner of the world, you'll find quite a bit of corn still in the fields. In fact, off to the left in this photo, you see another farmer's corn still standing. We know how it is to leave corn in the field for the winter, as we did it just last year. It's not good at all. You lose a bit to gravity, and you lose a lot to wildlife.

We finished harvesting our corn on October 31 this year. None too soon, either, as it was about two weeks later that we got our first snow. Many of the farmers are poised to start combining again as soon as the weather permits, but they will be battling either snow or mud.

There were more photos of the combining process, but all were blurry. Something about the vibration of the huge machine... and perhaps the dirt on the front window.

  1. I'm glad you got done! You beat us by about 10 days but we got done just a day before we got some snow so we were thankful.

    There is still corn standing around us as well, but many were getting done this week.
