I went to bed with the cornfield across the road only partially combined and when I got up the next morning – poof! The corn was gone! Just that fast! I love the cornfields right after the corn has been combined – it’s all a soft yellow and very pretty to look at.
Here’s the next step which isn’t pretty at all and thank goodness I got all the porch covers on before they started this step. Hog manure from hog confinement buildings is spread on the empty fields and tilled in before winter. These are called “honey wagons” – farmers depend on hog manure for fertilizer. It’s a valuable commodity in the fall and it makes for tall corn the next season.
And now some miscellaneous tidbits. Here is a picture of a tray filled with those wonderful little tea sandwiches from last Saturday. They were all delicious as well as the little filled muffin and desserts. The only thing I didn’t absolutely love was the tea – I would have loved a cup of coffee!
And a quick photo of one of my gorgeous roosters. He is picture perfect!
And remember Chicklet? Here he is all grown up and gorgeous as well.
Yes, I’m also working on the book but I had to step away for a bit to regroup. Ha!
