Harvest time on the Delmarva....no autumn leaves nor cold winds blowing. (We could use a few of those right now....) This is a telephoto view of one of our many farm fields
From what I've been told, this is a grain and straw harvest. The grain is grown, it turns brown and a harvester cuts the plants and lops off the grain. What remains is the stem of each plant, i.e. straw, low in nutritional value but useful around the farm in the barn, and in other areas such as landscaping. A baler makes the cut straw into neat bales for transport and storage.
Prior to moving here, I thought harvests occur in the fall. Not always!
