Jeff Duling, Sept. 14

We’re at least two weeks away yet for harvesting anything unless it gets hot again.

The tile lines are dry and in between the plants are stunted and green. There are some fields in the area that are pretty even that may come off this week. I know I do not have any ready yet.

I checked some corn and the moisture is anywhere from 26% to 27% on the tile line. Then in between the plants are green and little and I don’t know what we are going to do. It will be interesting. I have hydraulic deck plates but we may have to run all of the tile lines first and readjust. There will be some different shenanigans going on to get ready for this harvest.

We are finishing our last ditching job. We are done with tile until beans and corn are off and then we have another 140 acres to do this fall.

We got nine-tenths to an inch with this last rain. The town of Delphos got 6 to 7.5 inches of rain and were flooded out again. Hancock County didn’t get too much. The rain had to help some of the beans.

The cover crops are coming up. I have some rye to plant this week. With the manure I thought it might get too tall this winter so I wanted to wait a bit to plant that.

I think harvest could go fast once it get started because only half the trucks will be going up and down the road, but then we have all of these green plants still out there. I don’t know what to expect.
