Combining Corn

It’s been a busy week on the farm. The snow has finally melted and we’ve been able to get our corn out. Last year we were able to harvest it around Thanksgiving, so this year it’s definitely stayed around a lot longer. I always love to have it around us, because we feel so enclosed, but it’s nice to have it out and to see our surroundings again.

Luckily, I was able to snap a few pictures of it, which I thought I’d share it with you.

These past few days the weather has been great, which makes taking pictures much easier. The sun was setting and everything had the most amazing glow about it.

Before I know it, we’ll be plowing everything under and preparing for our 2014 crops, but in the mean time I’m entirely enjoying the harvest… Right now we get to see all our hard work pay off. And there’s nothing quite as sweet than sitting in the combine watching something you’ve worked so hard for throughout the year come full circle. It’s a feeling of pride…. and something I wouldn’t change!

This life, it’s pretty wonderful!

  3. The pictures make me wish I was there to see it in person 🙂 When ever I see a planted field, or cows grazing or any working farm I always think of that poem … “And on the 8th Day, God created the Farmer”. I personally thank you for all you do. I think farmers deserve so much respect, that normally they don’t receive. So from all the way here in New York Shayna, Just know that there are people that truly appreciate all that you do!!

    1. Oh Amy! THANK YOU so very much for the super sweet comment! You’ve truly brightened my day!
      You’re right, farmers don’t always get the respect they deserve, and we’re often looked down upon. I’ve always been proud of this life, and I’m happy to know that people appreciate all the hard work that we put into it. 😀
