2012 Corn Harvest Winding Down

As I drove toward the corn field, I couldn't see any machinery. Then I spied the top of the combine in the distance. 
It was the 17th of July when I told you that we had started on barley
 Three months of harvest is about what it takes. Of course, we are not combining all of that time.
There are days between the ripening crops to get other work done. But it takes nearly all of our energy for these three months.
Usually there are rain delays, but not this year. 
Since the crop surprised us with its quality, we were satisfied to keep going through the hot days and into some cold ones. 
The cobs have been picked clean, our bins are nearly full, and we are grateful. 
There may be something more to write about in the coming days, but I can't think of what it might be. Harvest has been the focus for so long that I cannot remember what comes next in GriggsDakota.
