This is located west of Tuscola on Rt 36. There is SO much corn, it is being store outside. It was cool to watch it pour out of the tower onto the hill. There were some hills with white tarp over the corn. I know the kernels are dried, but still! I would think the moisture would increase in these piles.....how do they keep it from spoiling? I am gonna ask my farmer friends.
woohoo! I have made it to the 300 mark! Only 65 more days left for this project! My job has been killing my creativity. I will be ready to not have picture editing to do almost every night. I am committed to the project though and will see it through to the end. :)
This is my friend, Jen. We met via the blog world when a friend of hers commented on a mutual friend of mine, then led Jen to my blog. We are the Homesteaders portion of H&H (Homesteaders and Homeschoolers)Club. We met up today and took all our kids to Millikin University's Dorm Trick or Treat Tours. We went through both the scary and non-scary dorm halls and collected candy from the college kids. The kids had a great time playing with her kiddos. I have several more pics from today, but still need to edit them and MAY use them in the next couple of days, depending what else I come up with. This job I have is KILLING my creativity!

Hello from Brian, Carla, Gareth, Zane, and Iris. We live in rural east central, IL on 10 acres. Brian works as a web programmer and Carla currently is a SAHM, used to do social work type stuff.
We have 2 sons, Gareth and Zane and 1 daughter, Iris. We have 4 cats and chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl.
This blog is mostly for friends and family to see what is happening in our lives and to serve as an online scrapbook. Come share in our adventures of raising 3 kids that were born within 2.5 years of each other and moving to the country as of June 2009 to live on 10 acres. Our plan is to fix up the old farm house, live in it a few years, and start building a new home further back on the property.
We are interested in gardening, beekeeping, sustainable living, attachment parenting, and secular humanism.
