It’s the time of year here in Minnesota when when talk turns from frost on the pumpkins to makin’ ice on the lake. The corn and soybeans around here are all in and the fall tillage work’s already done. But a few folks out there are still hauling in the harvest. According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, the Minnesota corn harvest is 94% complete as of yesterday.
We had a late and soggy spring, followed by a hot, dry summer, making for a tough growing season. Considering all that, yields were better than expected. So, in honor of all those guys still at it, and to say “congrats” to the rest for a safe and successful harvest, we offer a few harvest images shot in the fields near our home base of Dayton, Minn. Enjoy.
