Corn Harvest (Tarte Property)

video

We're on to the last corn field that will be chopped for silage, lots of trucks moving around bringing chopped corn (stalks and all) to the bunker under constant threat of rain. They are far away, but still quite loud.

From my backyard you can see the curved chopper and the big trucks moving from right to left, then one of the trucks delivering a load out back of the barns. Now, we wait for the grain corn to dry down enough for "picking", and for the soybeans to dry in their pods. A short slideshow of roasting soybeans last year is here.
