Week ending September 30th...

Harvest continues to roll on.  Corn is wrapped up and the tillage crew continues to chisel and turbo disk the stalks.  Soybean harvest continues at a sporadic pace as last week brought a few rains which kept us out of the fields for a couple days.  We are now down to under a 1,000 acres of soybeans.  The beans we have harvested so far have been sub-average with a few disappointments that we didn't anticipate... 

Besides the hustle and bustle of harvest, we managed to work in a trip to the Pumpkin Patch.  Correction - it was my first and annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch as this was the boys 3rd or 4th trip the patch.  Every time they come home from a local patch they bring gourds or some new pumpkin to complete our collection.  Dare I say we now have a better display for Fall and Halloween than we normally do for Christmas.  Hope you are in the spirit at your house as well...
