There it sits all quiet. The machinery that was busy for the last few weeks is silent.
The dryer that was so busy and noisy is now silent. The bins are full and the clean up has begun. Harvest is over.
It was a good harvest. Corn yields were at least 10% over last years record crop, soybeans yielded 25% over last years record crop. It was a very good year.
As usual we had granddaughters and friends over to help with the harvest. Everyone loves being in the big machines at harvest.
We also had their help when we harvest the pumpkins from the garden, What a haul!
Hope your harvest season went well! Now for cleanup and tillage, then we start getting ready for next year.

We’ve been spending some time with our grand-daughter Gwen. She’s in the time of life of great changes.
She’s starting to crawl. That means she is getting into new things. There is not much on the floor that is safe.
If there is anything that allows her to pull herself up, she is standing by it. Gwen has decided that standing is much to be prefered to sitting on the floor.
Put Gwen in a walker and she is all over the place. Her favorite new trick is to pull open drawers and doors. Soon she will be into them. That means that Grampy has been busy installing child latches on kitchen doors.
The girl needs constant attention. Anything hanging over the edge of a table will find her tugging at it. Lamps and books look out!
Now that she has the hand to mouth routine down, there is nothing going to stop her! Isn’t life with a toddler fun!
