Hard work, dirty work... they go hand in hand when it comes to farming. But I think anything that is worth doing is going to come with a price, and the price of this day was dust and sweat. But sometimes a person can find beauty in even the nastiest situations. We're supposed to find beauty in everything, right?
My situation this day was leveling bins. What is that?? Or maybe you are even saying, "what is a bin?".
So these are two of our bins. Not so pretty to look at, but necessary in farming. They are used to store grain. Here in SW Iowa it is mostly corn and soybeans. Farmers will store their grain not only to dry the grain with heated air, but also to wait for the best price for their grain. Right now we are needing to dry down the beans and a level surface of the grain is needed for even drying.
So up up up the old rusty ladder I go, and carrrrrefully climb into the hole at the top. I have gotten used to the height. When I first started doing this I would shake so bad I could hardly hold onto the ladder. But I love a challenge and have mastered this :)
