Corn Harvest

Corn harvest has been ongoing for a couple of weeks now. The corn dried down early this year (despite the late planting) because of the excessive, prolonged heat we had in July. Regardless of the corn being ready, we couldn't begin harvest because it started raining just as soon as the corn was ready. That's the way it goes sometimes.
I snapped a few shots the other day as I was performing one of my daily duties...lunch delivery. This is the grain cart unloading into the International grain truck. (Farmers call it a straight truck. One of these days I'll learn all of the terminology...)
Here comes Ted in the combine. (He must smell food!)
He normally wouldn't drive back across the field, but I wasn't driving a farm truck. (I had errands to run, kids to take to town, tractor parts to pick up, yadda, yadda... And there is no way I'm driving across a corn field in MY car!)

" Hello, Honey! I brought you some leftover pizza and a gooey homemade cinnamon roll.)
This is the thanks I get!
