I didn’t get up in the middle of the night to watch the whole total eclipse of the full moon. I did see the end of it when I got up to milk. It had lost most of its red look, but you could still see the shadow.
Just a few minutes later, much more of the moon was visible, and you could see my corn underneath the setting moon. It is a beautiful sight.
Despite expecting record a corn crop, it doesn’t translate into a good farming year. The good crop drives prices down. Add to that a wet fall, which means paying to have the corn dried, and it will be a lean profit to farming this year. This is why I can’t quit my off-farm job until the farm is paid for.
