Down on the Farm

Fall has arrived.  The corn harvest has begun.  This is an unusual sight.  This combine was probably first used in the 1960s. A two row corn picker - spits out whole ears of corn. As opposed to the modern computer driven machines that pick 12 rows at a time and spits out kernals of corn (cob removed).   Be sure to thank a farmer for putting food on your table.  Long hours, hard work - even when they know the crop will be small this year - due to the lack of rain in our area.
