Combining beans at Mirror Lake

Today is kinda cold and damp not enjoyable fall like weather, so I thought I'd leave a post. Mid October "Big Boss Jed" combines the beans here at Mirror lake. Yields are not what the farmers were hoping for; but with the lack of rain (when it was needed) low yields were expected. With yields low you try to get as much as you can even if it means sometimes you get to close to the wet ground and oh well even the best gets stuck. Jed climbs out of the combine to see how badly he stuck!! Milk-in Jim is called to duty with another John Deere tractor our 4 wheel drive tractor is in the repair shop. If this tractor can't do it we'll have to call a wrecker. Just a minor set back but off he goes to finish many acres of beans here at Mirror lake. "Big Boss Jed" has finished the beans now Milk-In Jim gets to take so time out of the milk house and he picks the corn.

They are dairy and crop farmers we live on a 150 acre farm in northeastern Indiana and we are surrounded by Amish farmers.I enjoy working in my garden or one of my flower beds. Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
