The two things I miss the most about farming is spring planting and fall harvest, corn harvest being at the top of my list.
Gary (the guy that farms my little chunk of paradise) showed up today to combine the corn and he let me ride in the cab with him, Wow things have sure changed from the way we used to do it. In his cab is a GPS, monitor, all the goodies. At the time I rode with him the monitor was reading yields in the 160-180 bushels per acre range with some parts of the field going 225 B.P.A. and 17 - 17.8 % moisture.
I snapped some pictures of him while running the corn, and his equiptment....John Deere, my favorite brand.
As some of you remember we put in a corn furnace to heat our home...looks like I'm gonna be warm. There will be enough to heat my home and enough to sell to help pay the taxes.
