These pictures were taken about a month ago, around the middle of August.
These are common sights as I drive the country roads, looking for photo opportunities.
Around here, the big round straw bales are about all you see. No longer do the farmers use the smaller rectangular bales, like they used to.
I need to be honest here. Given a choice, I would rather have had a couple of John Deere combines on the field, but this is what I saw. I grew up with the green and yellow equipment and still like how it looks.
Each little kernel in that stock, has potential to either be used as food for humans or animals, or if the farmer chooses to plant it next year, it can increase many times over,
I am not a farmer so I know very little about the details, but I know what is pleasing to my eye.
Seeing these beautiful symmetrical swaths, gets my attention every time.
That is just a pretty sight in my eyes.It has a neatness about it, that I like.
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.
