Life on the farm

Harvest is in full swing here at the Miller farm, I believe half the corn is harvested and the guys started on beans today. The corn can wait in the field without being damaged but when the soybeans are ready they have to be harvested right away or else they become to brittle and will just break into pieces when combined. This city girl has learned all kinds of fun farm facts since becoming a farmers wife.

If you are scared of heights this is not the job for you. Eric had to climb up and make sure the auger was set in the right place, don't want corn to spill all over.
Little farm girl playing in some spilled corn, the weather has been beautiful so Piper and I have been taking advantage of it. We have been spending lots of time "bombining" with the guys. That is Pipers way of saying combine.
Combining with Grandpa is one of her favorites things to do, she even took an hour and half nap on the floor of the combine.
Filling the wagon with corn, lots of fun to watch.
This past weekend we went to a local fall festival, the scenery was beautiful.
My cute little pumpkin.

How tall will I be next year?
