This is a well rounded post with Fat Ripe Pumpkins and the Hunter's Moon. It is, after all, Fall. The Summer Hummers are gone and likely in Mexico by now. The Buzzards and Vultures are coming back into the area, with new sightings everyday on the electric poles down the country roads to the local Veg Mart. There is one Turkey Buzzard I have been looking for and he appeared today. Some of You who have been with me awhile know who 'HE' is! It is my beloved King Buzz, back on Rainbow Creek again!

Distribution and habitation
Harvest is the process of gathering mature crops from the fields. Reaping is the cutting ofgrain or pulse for harvest, typically using a scythe, sickle, or reaper. The harvest marks the end of the growing season, or the growing cycle for a particular crop, and social importance of this event makes it the focus of seasonal celebrations such as a harvest festival, found in many religions. On smaller farms with minimal mechanization, harvesting is the most labor-intensive activity of the growing season. On large, mechanized farms, harvesting utilizes the most expensive and sophisticated farm machinery, like thecombine harvester. Harvesting in general usage includes an immediate post-harvest handling, all of the actions taken immediately after removing the crop—cooling, sorting, cleaning, packing—up to the point of further on-farm processing, or shipping to the wholesale or consumer market.
