You ever get done at the end of the day and realize you have been so busy you don’t even remember what all you did? Well, a lot of times that is how I feel writing these at the end of the week. We have been busier than I can even explain. Our employees have really been knocking it out of the park on helping us get stuff done. We are full-steam ahead with getting tile put in. Currently trying to split our time with a couple different projects. Right now looks like that it’s gonna be our main focus for a while.
The beans have all been sprayed and some re-sprayed. The corn is coming along. We’re nearing fungicide time on some corn, but still a ways off on lots of it. Most of the straw has gotten baled, but still have a little we’re trying to get dried out and baled up. We have gotten most our cover crops planted on any prevent plant ground. Still a few acres to go, but we were waiting on seed. We are hoping to get covers planted on our wheat stubble as we did not get any double-crop beans planted. It got too late and just wasn’t worth the gamble since we know we will already be having a late harvest. All this mixed in with meetings and appointments and all sorts of fun office work and paperwork that no matter the weather still has to be done.
I did get the chance to run to Peoria, Illinois, this last week and see and help work on a wetlands project at IllinoisCentralCollege. This project was being done by my friends at Illinois LICA. Just like our Indiana chapter, they are trying to use sites like this to educate about water quality and what we can do to help protect our natural resources. It was a lot of fun to see the site and design, but also a lot of fun to go run a bulldozer someplace new and different.
Don’t forget to get out and go see the Indiana State Fair. Tons of stuff to go see and learn. I don’t seem to get there as much as I wish, but I do always enjoy getting to go at least one day.
