"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Excitement for the harvest

It has been pretty busy around the farm lately.  Since it hasn't been raining, we have been able to be in the fields to chop most of the corn. 

I think harvest season starts out as one of the most exciting times of the year.  The fields go from being full of nice, tall corn to being bare with only corn stubble sticking up everywhere in just a matter of days.  Just being able to get a good crop in the silo is exciting.

But after a week of long hours, little sleep, eating on the run, and things breaking, the season can quickly become stressful and tedious.

This is what a breakdown looks like:

Thankfully we have had a lot of help and a lot of the work is done!  And we thank God for holding off the rain so that we could get a lot done and for the good crop that he provided.
