Wet week...

We were once very dry and have now switched to very wet.  Last weekend's rains totaled 2.5-4.5 inches of rain.  And we received more rainfall this week with the forecast calling for much of the same.  The hot and humid temperatures are helping our crops grow extremely fast.  We have all but 150 acres of corn sprayed and ~70% of our soybeans planted.  This week's activities included mowing around the shop and keeping up with every one's yard mowing as well as returning seed pallets and hard-side boxes to our dealers.  We plan to haul corn from bins this week, keep up with the mowing, and hopefully get back in the fields to finish planting soybeans. 

Have a great week everyone!
