They were talking that we could get 4 to 5 inches in this area. We got 3.5 inches out of the whole thing. It was plenty dry so the rain is not hurting anything and it will help all those who planted cover crops before the rain. And for those …

Glenn Harsh, Aug. 24

We’ve had more than 1.5 inches of rain, depending on the farm, that will help finish filling out the tops of these beans and probably put some test weight on the corn too. Some of our first planted corn is approaching black layer. It is not quite there yet, but …

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 …

Glenn Harsh, July 23

On our home farm we have only gotten about a half-inch but there was a downpour on one of our eastern farms. I think it really just depends on which little black rain cloud you get underneath. We were needing this rain, not desperately, but the corn was starting to …

Some of the corn in the neighborhood started tasseling June 29 but ours didn’t start until a few days later. Things look good. The first planted corn is silking and hopefully we’ll have enough cool weather that it pollinates OK. The later planted stuff is tasseling and it all looks …

Glenn Harsh, June 25

We are Y-DROPping our second pass of nitrogen on the corn and we are moving along in between rainstorms. Luckily a couple of farms up north didn’t get quite as much rain, but at the home farm we got 3.5 inches over 3 days and then we got another tenth …

We’ve been done with planting for probably 10 days. We are in the process of spraying crops and we are getting through the beans right now. Then we will switch to corn and get it sprayed here pretty quickly. The grasses are starting to come back on. Some of the …

We’re coming along. As to what I originally thought we were farming, we have about 300 acres of beans to go, but I picked up another 180 acres last week so I have to add 127 acres of beans and have another 50 acres of corn to plant. Prior to …

We probably have 15% of our corn in the ground and right at 10% of our beans are planted. It is going well because the cover crops are growing and are 6 or 7 inches high in most fields. That is a nice height to kill them off. We have …

Glenn Harsh, April 23

We worked on some tile repairs, some fencerow maintenance and we are finishing up our last farm for soil testing. That’s about the extent of the field work. With the cover crops, we do not really want to spray right now with the rain coming in. We won’t be able …
