The Harvest

Harvest time is here. It is one the most favorite times of the year for us, if we have any crops that need harvesting. This year we have two crops, and one is harvested already. We were quite pleased with the yield, especially since that field has never produced such a nice crop before. Here are some fun shots...




 
  Watermelon breaks are the most fun, aren't they now...

Oh, the carefree days of childhood.
 
 These two had fun collecting some spilled corn, as daddy will pay them for it.... this brings me back to the days when I was young, and after a bean harvest at my Grandparents' farm my brothers and I would trek way out to those fields in the hot humid sun and gather what we could find of the left-behind beans, which our parents would pay us for when we got older, and my mom would cook for us to eat. I find it almost scary that our parents would let us do that, out in the middle of nowhere. But nothing bad happened to us, and did we have fun!
