Signs of Fall






The sun was going down when I noticed this patch of leaves growing on the fence. The sun back lit just a one foot square of them, the rest was all in shadow.



I may have gotten a little carried away with the picture taking here.

I just couldn't seem to stop.

I also noticed that the soybean field had changed to all yellow leaves, and planned to take a photo the next day. Mistake. The wind picked up overnight, and now all the bright yellow leaves are gone.

There are just stalks and beans left to dry down until harvest.

We will be baling this afternoon. There isn't a lot there, but it is really nice hay. Now I have to find/make room to put it.

soybean hay. interesting.

Sorry to have given that impression. Nope, the hay is from the hayfield that was cut on, uh, whatever that day was. The beans need to dry down still before they come with the combines.

Ok, I've restacked the hay in the granary, and put pallets down, so it is ready for more. Now what should I do?

take a break?

i googled "soybean hay" after i made that last comment. now my head is bursting with useless knowledge.

Aha. Leaves are off the soybeans. That means the Asian ladybeetles will be swarming the hives and the vineyards.

Then I googled soybean hay after your last comment. Now my head is filled with useless information too. I never knew they made hay from soybeans.

Kathy, yep, the ladybeetles are swarming my house too. I hate them.
