Happy Labor Day! It's only 3 weeks until the Autumnal Equinox. We finally got some rain out of Isaac. They had predicted much more but we got a good boost for the late corn and most of the beans. I will have more cover crop coming up now!
Anyone who flew cover crop seed this week will be well rewarded in most places. Timing is everything in farming, isn't it?
My blog yesterday stirred a lot of interest! Some readers had never heard of it! It had been promoted on TV here for the last month. I even got email asking where to see it so I showed them how to look it up.
Then a friend told me about a whole larger movement described in the movie Thrive. That will be our next movie to see. It is coincedental I am seeing problems in crops when so many other power movements are happening on earth.
Here is something interesting about our U.S. Capitol I did not know. Did you know that? Here is another fact about our country many did not know.
I wonder how soon my corn will be down to 20% so I can start shelling it? I figure 2 weeks but I am anxious to start getting it in so I can get the cover crop planted. With all the pictures of harvest on Crop Talk, it makes me itchy to get started but I sure wouldn't trade yields with many of them, if any.
The first field of soybeans I know of where cut west of Farm Science Review and made 50 bushels but only tested 10% moisture. That's a refreshing report on potential bean yields.
I will be busy certifying fields for seed and foreign shipment this week so maybe that will keep my mind off harvest awhile.
