The geese are back! They fly over-head honking and talking to one another. I like to sit outside and watch them. Mom thinks it’s odd that I watch them, my head tipped back, my ears pulled forward, causing my forehead to wrinkle, but I’m interested in knowing what they are saying and where they are going.
Dad has been checking out the big truck, getting it ready for corn harvest. That won’t happen for a spell, yet, maybe by the end of this month. It just depends on the moisture content of corn!
We finished the last of the irrigation. The whole alfalfa field is now ready to head into winter in fine shape.
Anyway, the corn is ripe and starting to dry down.
There are still some green leaves at the top. I run down the furrows checking out the news, nose to the ground most of the time, but I do look up once in a while. You see corn harvest is a BIG deal around here. It’s Dad and Mom’s main crop. Meaning most of the farm is planted to corn.
So every day I take a little walk out and check out the corn…when it is about time to start harvest Mom and I will go out and put the farm to bed…we will gather up all the siphon tubes and the dams moving them to safety – away from cows hooves. Its big work and I LOVE IT!!! Sometimes I stay with Mom and sometimes, well, you understand, I check for news!
