“Not a moment of life is wasted on a farm. Others may have been more places but haven’t out lived me.” ~Jim Fisher
Soybeans before harvest
Soybeans loaded into a waiting truck.
Dust from soybean harvest hanging in the air.
When you see the dust clouds hanging in the air, you know it is harvest time in Tennessee. Here are a few photos from this year’s soybean harvest.
“Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a hoe and she laughs with a harvest.” ~Douglas William Jerrold
“There are few sights more pleasant to the eye than a wide cotton field when it is in bloom. It presents an appearance of purity, like an immaculate expanse of light, new-fallen snow.” ~Solomon Northup
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap … but by the seeds you plant!” ~Robert Louis Stevenson
I guess the following quote could apply to soybeans as well:
“The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.” Robert Fulghum
