Chopping silage, trucking silage, packing silage; repeat!

We started chopping our corn silage last Friday, and we are still chopping corn. Unfortunately the machine is most likely on its last leg and has been giving us lots of grief. Not to mention, we measured a stalk on the field we are on and it is 14 feet tall. Taller than the exhaust on the tractor!! So it's no small feat for that machine to put it through! It's the best corn we've grown. Other than that the mother-in-law and I have been taking turns feeding the extra mouths and I've been wiping bums and faces as per usual. As much as we love this time of year around here, I think it's safe to say we are ready for harvest to be wrapped up. Still trying to get our millet baled and oats combined. (not sure how with the daily rains we get)
