What an afternoon. The sun shone in the clear blue sky. Gentle winds reminded us that fall has arrived. It was corny!
You may think that means that I did something worthless, but not so.
We had the pleasure of receiving three visitors as guests on our farm. They expressed interest in corn husking. You see, the Minnesota State Hand Corn Husking Contest is just a week away. They came to learn how to do it so as to prepare themselves for the competition.
My husband hitched up the corn wagon to the tractor and took all of us to the corn field. There he explained the technique of cornhusking by hand. He also related the rules of the contest to these future competitors.
I got to drive tractor, the John Deere B, that pulled the corn wagon while the huskers tossed the yellow ears of corn into the wagon.
As time went on the young huskers got used to the technique and got to work on increasing their speed. I expect we will see them next week at the contest.
Yes, the afternoon was corny in that we were busy in the corn field. And it did have value. We made some new friends!
