Corn done…on to Soybeans

We’ve been hard at work for the past two weeks working to get everything planted in between spurts of rain. Jer will plant like a mad man for 2-4 days and then get rained out and have to wait for the sun & wind to dry the soil enough to get back to it. This is nothing compared to the wet spring of 2015 that still gives him nightmares. We ended up finishing the last of the corn up on May 8th and moved to soybeans that same day.

Beans have been going much faster because we’ve had two machines running almost everyday. Jerry will run the main planter and a hired hand or his dad will use the drill to plant the beans at the same time. (He says i’m going to learn how before next season, we will see about that). Only 400 acres of beans remain to be planted as of today, we should finish in good time and then will be able to sit back and watch it grow the rest of the summer.
