It’s done. The 2016 corn harvest here is complete. I have to say a big thank you to friends Ron and Leah. They helped me every day. I worked from dawn to dark so that we could get three loads each day. Tonight we finished up just after five pm. I did chores, fed horses and harnessed them so we were in the field mid-morning each day. It’s nice to have the dew off the husks when you are picking by hand.

My little weedy, spotty field yielded pretty good. In fact, it was much like the story from the bible about the boy with his loaves and fishes. The corn seemed to keep filling the wagon even though it looked sparse. The big ears were easy to pick. In fact, they were almost fun!

The main thing is that I am done. The best thing is that I will have enough.

My crib is a little over half full. I will continue to smile knowing the harvest is complete. The woodshed is full, the speltz are up and doing good and it looks like I may even get some time to fall plow before the snow hits….all because the corn harvest for this year is history!
