Daily we check the corn…riding out on the four-wheelers to get samples from all the fields. Samples on the ends, samples in the middle…then THERE IT WAS…the moisture content said…”Give it a go!” So we did!
Down the rows he went
Opening the driest field
Filling the truck with red/gold corn
Because it was the Thanksgiving holiday and the Elevator was good enough to stop and let everyone have a break….we parked the truck under the car port
Where Monkey-the -cat spent lots of her time checking to see WHY the grain truck was close to the house and not out by the barn.
Gradually the sun started to set filling our skies with a purple haze
It was stunningly beautiful,
Unusual and gorgeous all rolled into a swiftly darkening day
Terry left for the Elevator at 5 this morning…when he called he was 13th in line and more arriving. It’s 9:00 a.m. right now and he still isn’t home. He will be lucky to be here at noon.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed, send prayers and magic thoughts, please that this load passes and we are out-on-the-land until all the corn is in!
