No pictures for this update, but I did want to post that Dad was out walking corn today and stepped into one of our fields planted on April 18th and amazingly discovered that it had already black layered (roughly 32% moisture). That is a great sign considering how cool the weather has been this summer. Last week's weather was good for moving corn along to maturity as well as providing for record attendance at the Farm Progress Show in nearby Decatur.
As of today, we hope to start harvest on Monday, September 21st. We'll see what the weather brings us as I have windows open on the house this evening as I type. Enjoy your week!
