I can’t believe how early it’s getting dark now.
I’m not ready for sunset this early.
I guess it’s a true sign of fall. The weather is really starting to feel like fall, and the corn is looking like it’s fall.
But it makes it hard to take pictures for the blog.
Guess it’s a good thing I have some sweet yard goats to pose for me.
I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have the items for this week at the top of my side bar.
It was positively hot today. Even Bob was melting on the deck. (I don’t know why he didn’t go inside to the air conditioning.)
Since it was so hot, Mom and I decided to pick the Indian corn!
We have quite a bit and lots of variety.
We do think we should find a way to keep from planting it next to the field corn. When it cross pollinates, we end up with a lot of yellow with a few colorful kernels.
Oh well. We can make that change for next year. Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter (90* with a 99* heat index), so I am really not looking forward to working in an un-air conditioned brick building.

Besides my twenty-four acres of field corn, we planted a tiny little patch of Indian corn and popcorn. In keeping with the theme this year, we had mechanical failures and the corn is spotty and full of grass.
But there’s actually some ears on it! They should be ready around the time of the pumpkin patch.
It looks like the deer have sampled a lot of the ears. Dang.
Hopefully, we’ll get enough for our needs this fall.
I’m thinking I’m not cut out for raising these alternative crops.
