Frost Early This Year — Monday, November 4, 2019

(from Pinterest)

The remnants of Summer freeze-dried right on the trees, with that nasty storm last week. (As you can see the bright gold of Autumn barely started)

The moisture in the corn zipped down to harvest levels.  Although our renters have not started harvesting on our place

The alfalfa fields are just starting to show signs of turning brown…it takes alfalfa a long time to lose its green color.

Moon and one star

The chill of winter already upon the land.  Methinks we are in for a long, long winter.

CORN HARVEST!!! YA! We Have Begun—-Sunday, November 4, 2018

We have begun!  The last of our crops are now being harvested.  Sometime in the next two weeks, with fingers crossed and the creek doesn’t rise,

Our fields of corn will be at the elevator

Then it will be time to put the whole farm to bed and work on fences until the cows come in.

But all that is down the road a spell…for right now we will enjoy

Getting the corn off the shucks and into the truck!

And down to the Elevator.  This is an old photo from January 2016….the year the corn would NOT dry down until January.  It shows you where we go to deliver our harvest.

Anyway…we are up and running now!

And THAT is a very good thing!
