Saturday we finished the 2009 planting season for Johnson Family Farms. It was a busy day for all as Bob was planting soybeans, Dad was spraying the 2nd herbicide pass on corn, David was mowing and keeping water to the sprayer, and I was patching in drowned out holes with the two-row planter. We are glad to have the planting season behind us. Most all of the soybeans are up and the first planted corn is now thigh high and a beautiful green color as it has finally reached the nitrogen.
We are in desperate need of a rain down in Greenfield as the corn we planted on Monday has now sprouted and sitting in dry dirt. The forecast looks promising, but so far today's rains have all stayed to the north.
