Monsoon season has arrived. It is wet and cold. Some of the neighbors have corn in the ground, but it's less than 5% of corn acres. Overnight lows in the 30s means the soil temperature is still quite cold, which is not ideal for germination. It will probably be at least a week before anything happens around here.
Finally some rain, which we really needed. However, it came down faster than it could soak in, so we don't get to use it all.

Doing some residue management on corn stalks.

It is so dry that grass fires are a daily occurrance.


We're starting to see some activity in the fields.
