Harvest 2016...

Fall harvest is in full swing all around these days...

Last evening the combine arrived to harvest soybeans.  They finished combining late last night, and emptied the last of the beans from the grain cart into the semi this morning...

Then it was time to switch from the bean head to the corn head...

Then he headed out across the harvested bean field towards the corn.  He opened up the fields here at home so that Jim could pick the rest of the corn here for the corn crib...

Jim began picking around lunch time this morning, and here are the first two bin wagons emptied into the corn crib...

Jim doesn't fill the crib every year, but decided it would be a good idea this year to pick at least a portion of our fields rather than shell them out to be sold or stored in the grain bank.

If the weather stays nice and the equipment works like it should, he should hopefully finish up by tomorrow.  Then it will be time to shred stalks and bale corn fodder.


  1. A very busy, busy, but blessed time of year for your family.

    Enjoy these gorgeous Fall days.


  2. The weather sure as been nice.
    Good for getting lots of your work done on the farm.

  3. I don't know of anyone in this part of Kansas that puts up corn in a corn crib. Thanks for showing that!

  4. Good luck finishing up harvest and best wishes as you work on fall projects.

    Thanks for the nice comment about my hen picture! I think the Silver Laced Wyandottes are gorgeous too.
