We’ve got two fields of maize near us. I love it, it’s all planted in neat rows and I run up and down the rows.
Mostly the plants are all the same height but look at this monster! I called him the mutant ninja maize plant.
Anyway, it’s been growing all summer, getting bigger and bigger, but today when mum and I went for our morning walk, this is what we saw!!
I had to stay on my lead as we walked by the big machine and the tractor that was catching all the bits. It munches it up really small and all the bits get collected in the big trailer – I bet the cows are licking their lips!
There was quite a lot on the ground because sometimes it missed the trailer!
We couldn’t stay watching them all day long so we went off on our walk and left them to it.
We went all the way up what we call the Anderson track.. it was definitely a busy day for tractors! They were all out and about!
It seemed I was being put back on the lead every 5 minutes!
After this one we managed to get all the way up the lane without having to stop again. We stopped in one of the fields to have a game of hoopy.. some of the fields have been ploughed already but we still have lots that haven’t.
I did lots of chasing around, it’s one of my favourite games to play.
It’s quite a long walk so we had to get on.. so off we go.
This is great bird territory.. lots of pheasants hiding in the long grass.
Isn’t that just the greatest fun? I love it, I go off running in the grass and get the birdies to fly up in the air! I’m not allowed to chase them all the time, sometimes when we go past places where they feed and look after baby birds I have to go on my lead.
We’re almost back at the corn field now.. to see how they’re getting on!
I wondered where they’d gone, but we soon found out as soon as we got to the other end of the field. It was lunchtime and they’d all stopped for lunch!
In the evening mum and I did a shorter walk just to check on how they’d got on. This field was all finished and they were in the other maize field – we could see them as we walked down the lane.
By now it was just gone seven o’clock so mum told dad to come and meet us because he wanted to see them cutting the corn.
Where was he? The sun was setting fast and he still hadn’t arrived.
It wasn’t actually that dark, but it looked pretty with the sun behind the tractor & trailer. Dad didn’t make it in time to see them cutting the corn so it’s a good job we took some videos and lots of photos.
All this walking and watching is thirsty work! We all walked home together, the best end to a walk because I love it when dad comes to meet us.
