    Still picking my corn

    Yesterday my son and I harvested 11 more 5 gallon pails of my nice ear corn for our meat goats, this was the first time we have used the jd 50 lawn and garden cart I purchased last August.

    It takes about 2 minutes to shell each bucket of ear corn.

    I don't remember the sheller that we had having an electric motor on it.

    I added the electric motor so I could run the sheller myself and get finished quicker. It runs jus a little too fact.

    Going to pick more corn 🌽 today! Changed tractors on the trailers so I can drive over the standing corn stocks and pick directly into the trailers. Will send save a lot of time and effort not having to carry the heavy pails of ear corn 🌽 to the trailer ‘ need good traction and clearance to do this! 😎❤️
