Corn Harvest

We finished with corn harvest several days ago.  We had a great harvest and I along with my hubs are very grateful to be done!!!  It seems in the past we are still harvesting when Thanksgiving rolls around.

Corn harvest is my personal favorite.  One because it is not 110 degrees outside like it is during wheat harvest and two because I love fall.  Here are a few photos from harvest.  I will apologize for the low quality images....that's what happens when you forget to change your W/B...OOPS.


My son wanted to know where the rest of the combine was when he saw the green header show up...LOL.


My dad heading back to the field after taking the truck to town to dump.


A combine usually will seat 2 comfortably, but we made it work with 4 of us that night.


My hubs doing his thing!!!


My dad took our daughter in the tractor to give us a little more room in the combine.  It was quite entertaining to hear my son and daughter converse over the 2-way radios.


The bin of the combine when we are unloading corn.


The corn travels out the auger and dumps in the grain cart.


This right here people is how the cab of the combine looks during the end of harvest.  Obviously, Mt. Dew and Pepsi keep em rolling during those long days picking corn.  Maybe I should get him a trash can in there!!!!!


My hubs view for weeks upon end during corn harvest.  It's what he does, it is who he is, it is how he provides for our family....it is OUR LIFE and I wouldn't change it for the world.  Thanks for stopping by!!!
