As I’m writing this, we’ve only had a tenth or two of rain in the last week. Looking at the forecast for the next week, it looks like we will be getting some more, though. With the cooler weather we’ve had, the corn has slowed the drying process way down. There are some warmer days in the forecast, but we could definitely use more hot, dry days in the near future to help the corn along. We’re still waiting on the early corn around the silage field to dry down a little more so we can open up the field to start cutting silage. I was hoping that what corn we did have blown down a few weeks ago would have stood back up a little, but with the ears on they haven’t.
Our beans started growing a little more and filling the pods the last week with the help of the rains we received. We couldn’t have had a more perfect rain. It was the right time and came slow and steady and soaked in. We counted a few pods, and now that the pods are filling out, it looks like we’ll have a decent bean crop.
