Corn Harvest Shots – 2017

Here are some photos from our Corn Harvest 2017. My husband harvested 247 acres of corn this year.

Our farm dog Charlie made it in the shots as well.  This dog won’t ride in a vehicle, mostly because when he was a pup he fell off the utv and broke his leg.  But he will run along with the combine any given day!  Our daughter gets so worried about him!  Milton has to watch out for him most days during harvest!

We finished harvesting corn on September 20th and started harvesting a field of grain sorghum.  That will be a different post, so be sure to check back or follow our Facebook page or Instagram (farminggrace).

Until next time!

Corn Harvest -2017

corn harvest day 1 2017Corn harvest began September 4th this year.  Monday, which was Labor Day around 3:30 p.m.  Milton had been watching the fields, testing the corn daily to see how close we were getting. He was finally able to make his way into the field!

Today he is back at it and hopefully finish the field he started around 10:00 a.m. this morning later this evening.  The grandsons helped me take him lunch so we had to get a photo of them with Papa!

The fall harvest includes three crops.  Corn, Soybeans, and Grain Sorghum(milo).    This means our harvest will last over the next 2-3 months probably.

I had posted on our Facebook page a few days ago about our problem with weeds in some of our fields.  My husband has been working very hard to remove the weeds from the Grain Sorghum field.  He put an attachment on the weed eater and walks the field rows manually removing the weeds.  I wish I would have taken a before photo but I didn’t.  He has been able to remove a large chunk of the weeds.  You can see in the following photos the difference to the left from the right.
