The past few days were drying days, as far as the corn was concerned. The field that was just a little too green to chop on Friday was begging to be chopped today.
Here is a short video of the first load going into the empty silo...
All afternoon as I was peeling peaches, I listened to the drone of the chopper out in the field, and the tractor and blower at the silo, as load after load was emptied into the last silo. It's a good feeling to have that last silo full. Around the end of September, we will top off all three silos with our late corn, and that will be the end of silage for this year.
Tomorrow, Jim will level the silage, and we'll spend a chunk of time setting up the unloaders, so he doesn't have to climb up and fork silage down into the cart each time he feeds.
Fall is definitely here!
