On Saturday evening, MV decided to test the irrigated corn to see if it is ready to cut. He went to the field and shucked a few ears by hand, came back to the farm shed and tested it. Looked like it was time to prep the combine and head to the field!
This is what the Irrigated corn looked like prior to cutting. It's not the prettiest but MV assures me this is what it needs to look like to be ready to cut!
I must admit, I think Wheat is much prettier at harvest time, BUT don't tell the corn! :)
I don't want it's feelings hurt!
Let me introduce you to farm machinery used to cut corn!
