Happy Dance!

We were doing the "happy dance" all day yesterday. We finished up with this years harvest on Saturday (it's the latest that I remember finishing in the 21 years that we have been farming)! It was a long, drawn-out harvest with many trials but we made it through and are very thankful for the crops that we harvested. Now for the "clean up" that comes after the harvest. All the equipment needs to be cleaned up and put away and all the corn and debris laying around needs to be cleaned up too. I hate that part but hey, at least it means the harvest is finished!

Hi Chris, That's great, it's done for you, at least the harvesting part. But I'm sure the work is never done on a farm, right!
Have a great week.

Praise the Lord. I understand what you are saying. We have about 20 acres to go, but we have to find storage for it. We have been blessed this year with the best corn crop we have ever raised.

Good luck with the clean up and puting away of equipment.

Love and Hugs,
Joyce
