Hello again...it's a bright fall day here on our farm. We count these days of autumn carefully, trying to get several seasonal herd jobs done, as well as the fall harvests.
Soon, our high moisture shell corn will arrive at the feed area, and we will roll it, pile and pack it (see photo at left from last year)...then cover it to protect it and allow it to ferment. "Soon" means first of this next week, and so far, the weather forecast is for sunny and dry...and that's good!
See ya, Sallie.
Note: to wax leaves, select some leaves you like, place a leaf or two between two layers of way paper. Use an old pillowcase or other light scrap of fabric, under the wax paper and over top of it, on your ironing board. Press the leaves which are inside the was paper and fabric layers at a medium to low heat with your iron...enough to melt the wax from the wax paper on to the leaves. Cool, and then place the leaves (wax paper still on them) in between the pages of a dictionary or other "big" book you have at home. In a day or two, take the leaves from the book, gently peel the paper away from them, and you have waxed fall leaves which won't wilt and curl up.
