Land of the Corn

  So, what do we Minnesotans do when it's too late to swim in the lake and too early to go deer hunting?  Give up? 
We celebrate the harvest!
We fill a big pit with corn, climb up on some hay bales, and jump in!










We park an old truck in the field and shoot pumpkins at it.  Score!

 

 We get something warm to drink and watch the kids run around on the hay bales.
 
We make pumpkin art!

 

Minnesota farmers are proud of their corn!

  11. Okay, now we know how October should be done. I am hearing a lot about those pumpkin cannons. I travelled to South Dakota this summer. I've never seen so much corn.

  16. Hi Cynthia, Good old-fashioned fun is what I think! My Grands would be loving life! Did I tell you that my daughter and family might be moving to MN? They live in IN now but she got a great job offer.

  18. Looks like fun! We live in Frederick County, Maryland housing developments coexist with farms. I heard a farmer say some years back that the best crop to grow was houses. We are happy that corn, wheat and soybeans are still planted in the field behind our house.
