Another week has passed and here I sit deciding whether I really accomplished anything this week. We had another good week of harvest. Started the week off with rain, for which we are thankful. The guys have been very busy with some repair work and with rebuilding a tillage tool. That project turned out to be bigger than expected, but also easier than expected.
We have gotten lots of cover crops planted and then got switched to wheat. We are hopeful by the next article we are done with wheat for the spring of 2020. Crops have started to surprise more than expected. We are finding more out there than we originally had anticipated. No complaints — just kind of in awe with what the good Lord has blessed us with.
Corn doesn’t seem to be drying much, but for now were going to let it try. By late this week, we should be done with beans, or at least with anything that is not still green from replant. After that the sole focus will be harvesting corn no matter the moisture level. It should all be in the mid to low 20s, just not what we would prefer for mid-October.
As we can continue to keep on hammering on with harvest, we need to keep everyone out west in mind. There are a lot of operations out west that have received feet of snow at a time that already were struggling with harvest. While I may not like buying gas for the dryer, that is pretty minor compared to struggling with mud and snow. Hope everyone has a safe and productive week.
