WE HAVE BEGUN!!! —- Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Terry had the corn checked for moisture and we were DRY!

Out to the field we went, joy mantling our cheeks

On Tuesday’s bright late morning in October (thankfully not January like a couple of years ago) smelling of dry corn stalks, and shelled corn we began filling the truck!

By 1:15 in the afternoon the first load was down to Elevators.ย  By 2:30 p.m. it was back in the field.

Now…hopefully there are no breakdowns, or some sort of crisis, or rain…rain would not be a good thing right; harvest is here!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Fabulous! God is good and gives those who work hard and plant well a harvest, even when they have to wait till January. I’m glad that this year the harvest is in October.

  2. Yay!! I hope it continues to go well for you! We just harvested our corn and beans over the past two days, and it’s a good feeling to be finished. All except for about 5 acres of corn that Jim wants to pick because the moisture level was a bit too high yet when the combine came, and he didn’t want to be docked at the mill.

    • We understand that. The last two fields have been around 12%. We have one more two go…about 20 acres…he’s checking the moisture now; we may have to wait until Monday or so.
