This was the view from the front yard Sunday morning. Since July, the corn has been way over our heads, giving us a 9-foot-high 200-yard-thick privacy fence.
By midday, the field was started.
And by the evening, things looked a lot different.
It’s amazing how strange it seems now. I know no one is actually spying on us as we are, in fact, completely boring. But I feel like we’re exposed now that there’s no corn to hide behind.
The auger wagon usually follows the combine, and ferries the grain from it back to the trucks parked on the road. Then the trucks take it in to the grain elevator in town. However, a small portion of the grain from this field goes into the bins here.
There’s still a lot of harvesting to finish though. Cool weather and a lot of rain kept the farmers out of the fields much longer than usual.
