Corn harvest is in the air these days. It seems that everywhere we go, some farmer is questioning Colby about the corn.
“It going to be good this year?”
“How much longer until you boys are running?”
“Ready for harvest, yet?”
Colby smiles and nods, politely answering their questions. Farmers are funny. They seem to dance around the real answers, trying to not appear too cocky. “Well, everything looks okay right now. We should be running in two weeks, maybe three.”
In reality, he is extremely excited. He’s ready to reap the rewards of a summer of hard work. But you can’t count your chickens before they hatch.
And you shouldn’t brag about bushels before they are out of the ground, either.
