We are completely done. We finished the Friday before Thanksgiving with our crops and we finished up our custom work the day before Thanksgiving. We got done and moved stuff home that Sunday and started with the custom work on Tuesday and everything has dried up since.

The last field we were in was wet and we will have to do some tillage where some places are torn up depending on how dry things get. There are people working ground around us right now.

We had a little grass in the corn up at New Paris where the water stood and drowned out the corn. That hurt yields some. We had a good bit drowned out with the fields where we did our custom work too.

The corn ended up around 190 bushels or 200 and the beans were 64 or 65 bushels overall. We thought corn would be around 165 and the beans would be around 50 and when we got into them we were really surprised. Things ended up really decent.

The beans held up well through harvest. We had a big wind that broke the tops out of a lot of the corn right above the ears. It seemed like the harvest was never ending because every time you turned around it was raining.

We are going to clean out dryer and work on some end of the year jobs now.
