Life Has Been a Blur
Summer has quickly faded and fall is definitely here.
It has been a while since I've updated you. Life has thrown us some curve balls that we haven't expected and it has been a blur for the last two months.
Spending extra time with family and friends when they need it is what life is all about.
The blurry picture below is me following Dean after dark. He is pulling two wagons of corn and I'm following him with the four-way flashers.
Farming activity is in full swing. Dean is watching a leveling auger in the picture below. It evens out the corn so it dries better. This bin is a drying bin which has a large drying fan that will dry a batch of corn in a few hours. There is also a propane heater that is attached to the fan to help dry the corn.
We try to keep our drying costs down by letting the corn dry naturally out in the field.
If you are wondering why the corn has to be dry, it will spoil in storage if the moisture content is too high.
Below is my tractor with empty wagons that are ready to be filled later in the day.
Dean decides to switch from combining corn to beans so he has to switch from the corn head to the bean head.
The last few weeks have certainly been busy doing so many family activities, but there's always time to stop a minute and count your blessings!
