Cleaning the Bin


One of the projects we do for my parents when we go to the farm is clean out the corn bin.  When it gets so low,  it’s a lot of shoveling.  Jemma helped me do this for the first time.  The boys usually help me.  Bill gets a pass since it bothers his allergies so bad.


We got it emptied out.  Jemma did a great job, worked really hard.


Before we got the bin cleaned out, we had to take a load of corn to town to sell.  The truck gets weighed when it is full.


Then it gets unloaded, and then the truck gets weighed again.   That is how they determine how much corn you have in your truck.


This is how big the corn was on June 9th.  My mom said it was taller than knee high by the 4th of July.  The unwritten rule is that the corn be knee high by the 4th of July.

    I think it’s neat that your children get a bit of city live and country live. My sisters and I were the same way, and we loved seeing both worlds.
