|On July 22, this is what the ground looked like.|
Yes, that is at almost 21 inches.
|The corn on August 25, very close to being ready to harvest.|
|Corn is competitive, each row thinks it should be taller than the previous row.|
After harvesting the outside rows, you can see the true height of the cornstalks. August 27.
(Please remember that Alta is about knee high.)
|This is my view from the driver's seat in the tractor as the combine unloads into the grain cart.|
|The truck full of corn. (Driven by my Dad that day)|
|My view from the seat of the tractor, following the combine to the opposite end of the field.|
|Looking out the back window of the tractor as I unload the grain cart into the truck.|
|The inside of the grain cart.|
|Another view of the inside of the grain cart. The space in the bottom |
right corner is the unloading auger.
|Alta by the grain cart. It holds just over 1000 bushels.|
(FYI, a bushel is 9 gallons)
|My hand by the bolts on the wheels of the grain cart.|
|Between 2 rows of corn.|
|Little parts of the corn husk (we call them bee's wings) on the ground|
close to the grain dryer.
|Sunset over a field after harvest September 1.|
|The combine in the distance (kicking up dust). I see some of the most |
beautiful sunsets while in the tractor during harvest.
I hope you enjoyed my harvest pictures. Next week I have a yummy peach recipe for you (think peach pie without the crust!).
