The men busy getting the maize in before the rain

We had a glorious day for the cornpicker, which works its way round all the plots of corn owned by the people in our village.

By the time the harvest had almost finished, the skies started to look pretty dark and we had to work fast to get the maize into our “crib” where it will dry out and be used for feeding our animals in the winter.

The maize crop is good – despite the drought

The cobs are big and full – apart from those nibbled by badgers and wild boar !

We haven’t had too much damage this year by animals. We’ve been using a scarecrow with a radio in his pocket – shame it didn’t scare off some selfish devil who turned his or her car round in the maize field, probably while they were looking for mushrooms in our woods. Grrrr……
