Great week....and Happy 4th of July!

A few of the drowned out spots on our Williamsville Farm still have water in them.

Helping our neighbor finish planting soybeans.

A view of our 2010 corn plot.
Thank you to the participating companies; Wyffels Hybrids, AgriGold, Monsanto, & Pioneer.

Last week was very busy at the farm with numerous activities going on all at the same time. Dad and Bob finished spraying beans for the first time; hoping it will be our last trip across the beans until harvest. We also signed our seed corn plot and David and Bob got all the roadbanks mowed and looking good for the holiday weekend. On Friday we headed back up towards Williamsville and helped a neighbor get his remaining 160 acres of beans planted. Saturday we spent the day filling in wet holes on our Williamsville farm; there were more bare acres than I expected as we went through another 45 bags of soybeans. Weather providing, we plan to haul more corn from our bins to the terminals along the Illinois River at Beardstown as well as put away the last of the spring machinery this upcoming week.
Happy 4th of July!
