Harvest to Come

While we have recently harvested our crop of barley, we (and the cows) await the new maize harvest that we normally take at the end of September. This is what the maize clamp that held last Summer’s harvest looks like now – nearly empty, all eaten up by the cows along with the barley and other silage during the winter months.

Come September this is what will happen to the fields of maize that are now vigorously growing. Harvesting and chopping up…

… and putting in the clamp.

… and covering over and storing

… to be munched by the cows

… and repeat. They don’t half eat a lot those cows!
