AdFarm Corn: Ready to Harvest

At the end of May the corn popped through the ground and began to grow.
The Farm Inspector did her best to keep an eye on things for all the AdFarmers!
By the Fourth of July it was way past knee high.
So she had Farmer Fred measure it in August.
By September we knew we had a beautiful field of corn, but as we all know by now, it is not a crop until it is harvested and sold.
That day of reckoning is soon upon us. The AdFarm field appears to be ready for the combines.
The stalks are crisp and dry. A few have been knocked down by wildlife, probably deer.
The cobs have dropped and the silks are now nearest the ground as they hang from the stalk.
There seemed to be the sound of blackbirds in the distance
But it was windy and the corn was rustling and I couldn't be certain. This is the only blackbird I saw fly up out of the cornfield.
The Farm Inspector has ordered a combine to get out here on the double. I will let you know what happens.

  1. How many acres of corn do you have? I love harvest time:)

  2. We have between ten and fifteen percent of our crop acres in corn. The weather has been great this Fall and combining corn in mid-October is a real bonus.
