This was a busy weekend on the farm. Yesterday we finally got all the crops in. And yes, that was November 15. After a long, wet, cool summer and fall...we just managed to get them in before Thanksgiving. That's as late as I can remember, although my husband remembers harvesting frozen corn in 1995.
There was plenty of equipment out ready to work!
After finishing soybeans last week, we just had corn left. This required the combine, 2 grain trucks, and a tractor with grain cart. Everyone was busy harvesting corn!
While that was going on, we were also mowing down what was left of the corn stalks, raking them, and then baling them into fodder bales.
There were also cows to feed.
And what comes after feeding time? The spreading of manure, of course.
Even though it was a busy weekend, there was still plenty of time for goofing around in the corn.
And that sunset? Was the perfect ending to a perfectly busy weekend.
