Tall corn...

It is amazing what a little warm and humid weather can do for the crops. The picture above is our corn on the Reiser - Ashland farm planted our third day out this spring (Apr. 20th). It is much taller than I anticipated. With temperatures in the 90's this week corn is now adding a leaf a day and growing fast. So fast that it is brittle to the touch.

The soybeans look good as well as they like the warmer temperatures, but prefer to have a little drier weather.

Happy Father's Day!
