ACRE UPON ACRE OF CORN unfolds in the mixed sunshine and grey skies of an October afternoon in southeastern Minnesota.
It is the season of harvest.
Cornfields roll into soybean fields, some harvested, some not.
Trucks and tractors and combines labor or await the farmers who will toil day into dark to reap that which they’ve planted and tended and watched until now.
Corn brims wagons like a stash of gold, banks of bins or the local grain elevator ready for harvest delivery.
This is the season the farmer awaits.
This October, this harvest time.
