Feels Like Fall

Leaves changing color from green to gold or crimson; geese migrating south; combines rolling through the fields; wearing Carhartts; the smell of corn drying and newly weaned calves bawling are sign of fall in Illinois. Fall is a nice transition from summer to winter. The rural landscape during the fall is a beautiful sight to me. From the tractor cab, I enjoy seeing the lights of tractors and combines surrounding me as we work in the fields at night. I love fall...the energy, enthusiasm, long hours and hard work. Fall brings a sense of pride and accomplishment, as it is the reward for a season of hard work.
