2018 Between the Rows



AJ Baltes, Aug. 6

We are still dry but two weeks ago we got about 2.5 inches of rain. That helped perk things up, but it is amazing how fast it dries out. I think it is supposed to be over 90 degrees again today. Some of the corn is still pollinating and some …

Last Tuesday we had 2.5 inches of rain. I think the corn and the beans look tremendous. We planted 40 acres for the Conservation Stewardship Program— crimson clover, radishes and barley — and those are coming up and things are looking really good. A couple weeks before that we had …

We got rain over the weekend. Right here at the home farm where we really needed it the most we got three-quarters of an inch. It wasn’t a big cell that went through but it dropped quite a bit of water and the plants welcomed it. That perked things up …

Earlier last week we had an inch and three tenths. It was a nice shot of rain just about everywhere in the county. It was needed and we are hoping for another one today or tonight. I saw something about the possibility of severe weather. I’ll just take the rain …

We are pretty happy. We got about an inch over the weekend here at our farm. West of here we have some farms and they got anywhere from 3.5 to 4 inches. They had a storm system that set over top of them for three or four hours. We were …

Over the weekend we got two inches spread out over three days with no flooding and no ponding. It was an awesome rain. I think it will almost complete the corn and I think the beans are really soaking it up. We were really dry with all of the 90-degree …

Last week it was hot, humid and nasty. We need rain. I can’t believe it went from hot and humid to cool without really getting much rain. It just kind of spit a little here and there. We could probably go another week and not really be hurt without rain, …

Things are looking really good. The corn just keeps going. It has had the rain, the sun and the heat. We have been hot but it is just starting to pollinate. We’ve had some cooler nights and we’ve had enough rain that it is keeping those silks moist. It started …
