Getting Close–Thursday, September 25, 2015

Wake-UpWe are getting close (now),  to being done, with the pinto bean harvest.  Tomorrow should see the end!

3Prices are low. They are low on the corn and the hay also.  But storing something doesn’t always produce a higher price later on.

I always find this so odd…the farmer get a small amount, but the retail in the grocery store is extremely high…too many middle people along the way, I guess.


We are still irrigating the alfalfa field.  It’s a big field and takes a long time to get across, but we should finish with the irrigation by Saturday.

Drying-Corn-1After that we wait.

Corn harvest will start the last of October, or in November sometime, it all depends on the moisture content of the corn.

Winding down to gear up again…it called harvest!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Going backwards in my reading catch up but wanted to say hello and wish you well on the harvest and totally AGREE with the too many middle people part of your post. Seems like the $$ should be going to the bottom of the pile but never does! Hugs my dear!

  2. Linda, that last photo of the pink sky over the corn is a heartbreaker. The melancholy of the season is in full force in that photo. Summer slipping slipping away, fall, all things nearing their time to sleep out the winter. Can I print that out and carry it with me? I think I will…
