We fared pretty well. We got a little over 2 inches. A lot of the Cincinnati area and north and south of us had 3 to 5 inches. We didn’t flood. It rained over two-and-a-half days and we fared better than most. South of us is pretty flat and they …

We’ve continued to get rain. The corn I think is wrapped up. My two big questions now are: how good will the yield be and will the amount of diseases I have in my corn affect standability? I think without a doubt this corn crop is going to be big. …

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 finished planting around May 12. We have just had exceptional weather. It has almost been a picture perfect planting year. For the first time I can remember, we started planting and we didn’t stop one day until we were finished. We usually have to stop because we get rained …

We actually started up last Sunday. We got the planters in the field and got the kinks out. We hammered down ever since Monday. We planted almost 1,000 aces of corn and beans. They went in really well. One thing though, we are dry. We haven’t gotten rains and after …

We have gotten our wheat sprayed with herbicide and fungicide. A lot of the neighbors just got spraying Saturday and Sunday. The cover crops are taking off and we have held off on spraying with the rain maybe coming today or tomorrow. I don’t want to kill the cover crops …
