Corn Harvested

Julia, Katie and I went up to the farm yesterday to pick pumpkins from Katie’s personal pumpkin patch and I snapped this photo of all that’s left from 40-acres of corn. They hauled off five big double trailed trucks filled with organic feed corn when all was said and done.

Now that the corn is harvested and the field has been mowed and plowed it’s ready for seeding or planting again. This year instead of a winter cover crop he’ll actually be planting vegetables… which should be interesting… he’s never done that here before.

We didn’t get any work done on the tiny house since it was just a fun family mid-week trip. The next time I go up to work I’ll put the roofing felt down to protect it from the rain. I’m also hoping to get some scrap sheet metal for the roof but we’ll see how that pans out… you never know what will turn up. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Looks like a lot of free wood available in the Michigan area if this is the kind of thing you are looking for…found it on recycle.net where you can seek or find recycled building supplies. Good luck with the tiny free house!

  2. I’ve actually been up to the farm a couple times but only once for tiny house related work. I dropped off some plywood (about 12 sheets) I got free and used from a pile of debris. I misplaced the photo and decided to skip posting that. I need to get up there and get the roof covered before the rain really starts up.
