One season ends and another begins as our Tilted World hurtles along its path around the sun.  The harvest is in, and it’s time to turn the standing corn stalks into silage.

Meet Massey Ferguson, or “M.F.” as the corn snidely refers to him:

By the looks of ol’ Massey, he’s earned their enmity over many a season.

This shot was taken around 4pm, as the shadows lengthened and the temperature dropped into Sweatersville.  Soon the barn lights will come on; a farmer’s day is longer than we now have light for:

The (extended) Thanksgiving season is a fitting time to remember the folks who make it all possible by rising early and gettin’ back in late so we don’t have to.

Thanks, folks.

And thanks also to Mary over at Work of the Poet for hosting this Ruby meme!

The Massey makes quick work of deleting the remnants of the summer corn. The stalks may be laughing now, but the ruby work tool will take care of that, too, and real soon…The barn is a beauty, the sun setting against the classic barn red is a sight to savor!

Beauties, both of them!

And that second one is a quintessential New England farmstead, innit?
