Fall in Southern Indiana

Fall is here again, and with it, harvest time.

Farmers have been working overtime to get the crops in before bad weather. Our neighbor worked into the night to get his corn in yesterday.
Most of the beans are in, as is the corn. There are still a few fields left to pick, due to the combination of late planting and a very dry season. I haven't seen a year this dry in a long time. If we hadn't had a wet winter and spring, the yields would be much worse that what the farmers are getting now. Fall also gives us the opportunity to watch the colors change. Here's a few pics to show you how beautiful it is here. We don't have full color here yet, and may not get the full color, due to the unusually dry summer.

As you can see, we have some beautiful country around here. The leaves are just starting to turn, but because of the dry weather, we still have a lot of green on the trees. Pretty unusual for October. Won't be long til winter...oh, and by the way, the wooly worm I found recently was black, brown and black...hope it's not right. I hope we don't make up for the lack of rain by having a bunch of snow and bad weather. Guess we'll find out soon enough.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
