With yields of well over twenty ton per acre, there are a lot of trucks hauling corn on the country roads these days.
It's in times like these that we call on retired truck drivers...or truck drivers who have a day off...or anyone who drives truck that wants a free lunch...to come give us a hand. How nice to have friends!
We (I use the term loosely!) started cutting in a field a mile south of the farm, where the bear have been harvesting for the past few weeks. Normally there is not much of anything left in the field once the harvester has passed through...
...but in the areas where the bear have been feasting, there are large sections of flattened corn.
As of now, their buffet has been moved to the bunker silo...
...and they will have to look elsewhere for their ready supply of corn.
And speaking of free lunch...meals on wheels arrives right on schedule...and the guys have a fall picnic in the field. They can't quite finish off the apple cake...
...but they gave it their best effort. (I posted the recipe here if you are interested.)
The corn harvest continues today...and one day soon we hope to have all the corn in the bunker.
And after all is said and done...there's enough corn on the pile to keep the cows happy until next year's harvest!
Thanks to all of you for your messages of congratulations on the arrival of our precious granddaughter. She is doing well...as is her momma...and they will be discharged from the hospital today.
Have a wonderful day!
