City Daily Photo Theme Day: Workers

On The Farm 2014-11-28 8

No shortage of workers on a farm, even though it can look like fooling around when company is over. The big four wheel drive pickup truck can get to most places in the fields but if you want to get anywhere fast you use an ATV. Brother-in-law Mel, a certified, actual farmer, demonstrates.

Just below, my son Andy pretends to be working. That's him in silhouette in the cab of the combine. Some corn got harvested but no job skills were acquired that are useful within the city limits of Chicago. In the end, Mel and his son Ryan got the corn kernels into the truck.

Hard work is farming.. although maybe with all these new-fangled machines, not as hard as it used to be :)

its a 180° turn from your normal daily routine but it must be fun having family like that.

Farmers put their time and life into their land.

This brings back memories--I spent my early years on a farm.

My cousin uses different equipment for his crop, apples, but farming's a hard, demanding job no matter what you're involved in.

"(...) no job skills were acquired that are useful within the city limits of Chicago." You made me smile, Bob! Great series.

Farming has changed so much in just the last 25 years, Bob. Over here, the small family farm is being squeezed out.

I guess one fake worker will count. Always fun to see farm snaps I think.
