The high temperatures outside have come to a screeching halt, we’ve gone from making double plays at the baseball diamond to defending the quarterback at the football field, school is well on it’s way and my grass is dormant. But one of the biggest signs of fall are my boys begging to ride in the combine and/or grain trucks at Granny & PawPaw’s farm. A lot more fun than hand picking the corn at home. Ouch!
Harvesting corn is nearly in full swing around our area. Soybeans are still finishing up their growing cycle and won’t be ready for a week or two. Another huge crop in our area is pumpkins. A nearby city is the Pumpkin Capital of the world. Even the pumpkin fields are nearly bare. There is still plenty of work to go around.
So what does this mean for you? Patience. I want to thank you for your patience as farmers work to collect feed for their animals and help feed the world! Safety in rural areas is so important to farmers and its greatly appreciated when drivers slow down.
Now I want to know…How far along is harvest around your area?
