Harvest Time Is Upon Us

Harvest Time is upon us. Most farmers are already bringing in their corn and beans, but there are a few late planters. The harvest that pertains to me each year is the pecan harvest (first photo). I work at a farm in the Fall where I am one of three women that crack and bag the pecans for sale (both local and internet). The pecans won't be ready for harvest until we have a few hard frosts and the pecans fall off the trees. As seen in the photo shown, the pecan hulls are already drying out and starting to crack open. That's a good sign. The other crops featured in the photos are corn and soybeans
