Aw Shucks

Okay – the Indiana farmer’s daughter in me is definitely showing in this file. LOL

Harvest season will soon be upon us, the crops in the fields are starting to turn brown and dry down. In our area we had a very hot, dry spring. The kind of weather that is great for getting seeds planted, but not so great for sprouting seeds and growing a crop. Just when things were looking pretty bleak the rain showers came. The crops look pretty good right now, but a good farmer knows to never count the crop before it’s harvested. An early frost, strong winds, hail, soggy fields can still play havoc with the year’s income. Farming is not an occupation for the faint of heart or the worry-wart!


File available at Cutters Market.

I think this title could find many uses. Fall festival photos, picking out a pumpkin, eating sweet corn, visits to the farmers market, gardening, or any of the “aw shucks” slightly embarrassed, slightly proud moments of life. You could cut the husks in brown and the corn in an autumn print to make Indian corn. Enjoy!

  3. The farmers in Dubois County, at least in the southern half, have been harvesting for almost two weeks now. Some of the soybeans are close, too. Strange to see this going on so early!
    Thanks for the file - we go to two corn mazes every fall, so this one will be used!

  4. Hi Deb!
    Wow, that is an early harvest!
    We've had fun at corn mazes also, I'm always carefull to stay close to someone with a good sense of direction - otherwise I'd be lost and never seen again! LOL

  6. Yesterday was one of those, didn't have time to start up again.
    Thank you for this sweet file.
    It can be used so many ways.
    I am going to put it on the front of a B-day card and inside it will say,
    (Ah Shucks)
    "50 already?"
    Or something along those lines.
    Thanks Vickie
