There is still much to do, farm work does not stop just because it’s Autumn
It actually speeds up for this season is the accumulation of winter, spring, and summer
It’s a good time, though. It’s the time of Harvest where the demands of the day increase.
(I just bought myself a new work coat…well, actually I got TWO new work coats…looking at this one, it was time 🙂 )
The corn harvest is getting very close. We were thinking we would start Monday, but not quite yet.
The moisture content of the kernels is 15.5% —as soon as we hit 15% the combine will head into the field, the big grain truck will follow it and there we will be…
in the harvest.
These late Fall days, cool and growing short, deplete our energy, but the work nourishes us.
Winter nears—the leaves are falling like yellow flecks of light on the tired ground.
Everything and everyone is singing the song of Fall.
