The corn is drying now…past all its growing time getting ready for harvest
Each field (we have three) shows the maturity of the corn –the shucks drying down,
The tops turning gold, then gradually turning brown.
The kernels are dented
and hard enough you can’t poke a hole in them.
The last set of water has been accomplished and then turned off of all the cornfields.
Although, we are still irrigating the three alfalfa fields.
But, for the corn, the growing season has finished. Now we wait for it to dry down to the correct dryness, at which time we start corn harvest.
