Harvest

28 Oct

Yesterday evening, the crews showed up to harvest my beans.

I’m grateful they are getting them out because we’re supposed to have a wintery mix coming tonight.  And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get better any time soon.

This year has not been a good one for farming.

I hope next year is better.

Late Fall on the Farm

22 Nov

We’ve already had several small snows, and most of November has been colder than average.  I have a hard time believing it’s still fall.

It really doesn’t seem like fall.  We have a couple of seasonal days.  Of course, there’s lots of rain in the forecast for one of those days.  Then it’s snow on Sunday and back to cold next week. I guess I’ll just be grateful for the couple of nice days and the fact that I’m mostly ready for winter.

Finally Harvested

17 Nov

When I came home from work yesterday, they were hard at work harvesting my corn!

I just got here when the combine was filled up and had to go empty into the big grain truck.

However, the truck had just arrived, and they were already emptying the wagon into it.

I love seeing all that corn!

They filled the truck.

Then it left for the elevator.

It wasn’t long before it was back.  They ran into the night trying to beat the rain/snow that was coming.

Luckily, they managed to get done.

The sunset looks pretty amazing over my harvested field.  I am greatly relieved to have this harvest finished.
