The fall season is here and with that comes an end to the harvest of crops and a general slowing down of pace on the farm. We finished the harvest season by chopping corn for silage a couple of weeks ago. We had a good crop of corn this year considering how dry it was for awhile this summer.
Now the agenda includes putting equipment away for the winter. We like to keep as much equipment in the shed as possible over the winter months. Also the barn needs to be gotten ready for the winter by making sure the windows are all in good repair and the doors can all be closed. Then there are the heifers that went out to pasture in the spring that need to be brought back into the barn. So there is still plenty of things to do, it just isn't as pushed as it is sometimes over the summer months.
Hello, if you are a follower of this blog you will remember that Angela was doing the blogs. Well, things have gotten busy for her and so Stan, her dad, is filling in for now. I am not as techno savy as her so I am not sure how this will work but I am going to try and post on a hopefully regular basis.
