Yesterday we were lucky enough to finish planting the remaining 15 acres of corn west of Lincoln; just ahead of more rain. I am pleased to report that all tractors and machinery are operational once again and have made it back to our base of operations in Ashland.
Rainfall - the majority of our farms received between 0.7 and 1.0" of rain since Memorial Day, while our Greene County farms had 1.2." Our hope is that the newly installed tile system starts working immediately. Grandma Mears reports that the corn we rotary hoed is up and looks good in Greenfield. Our first planted soybeans have emerged as well and are looking good too.
