Here on the Farm, our milk inspector stopped to tell us that it is time for a federal inspection and we need to get everything in tip-top shape, so we are getting ready for this all week, cleaning well. On Saturday morning we got a light frost that hit some of the corn and will help it dry down as will the warmer weather. It could be ready for chopping soon. Have you noticed? Some corn is being chopped now. It can’t wait too long and we need good weather. We are keeping a good eye on the progress - some is ready but other fields need more time to prepare and probably won’t be ready when the others are. It’s getting dry and the fields are just right for getting some second cutting hay and some corn chopping. As always keep farmers in your thoughts for good weather and a good harvest.
