September 21, 2007 – Fall, Up Close

The state’s main commodity crops are in drydown.

Here’s a group of dried soybean pods, about ready for harvest. The first combines are out this week. I started scrambling a bit today when I saw our neighbor starting on corn. Since he’s the one that loads up our wagons for the corn stove, I spent a good part of the day getting the current contents of the wagons unloaded. One had ground broiler feed, so I scrambled to find enough empty garbage cans to accomodate all the feed. The other had some corn left over from last year, so I bagged all that up as well. Now I’m ready when he comes over to fill up our wagons.
