gold rush

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The rush is on to get the crops harvested. It's not as frantic as it would be if they were harvesting later - say in early November or later.

It's a beautiful site to see the corn flowing into the grain haulers. The bushels-per-acre numbers are pretty high this year which is good news for the farmers.

We're just getting ready to harvest the beans and then the corn starting sometime this week hopefully.

Awwww ... the dust ... the asthma ... and the joy of getting it done!!!!!

I don't know what the yields are here in Missouri; we had quite a drought all summer, so it can't be too good.

We are having amazing yields in west central Illinois despite our second consecutive year of drought. It will be interesting to see what happens next year.

I'm seeing corn in my sleep. I'm ready for it all to be in the corn bins already.
