The last bean field

Thursday, October 11, 2012

We are down to the last field of early-planted soybeans–the Freddie farm.  It’s about 300 acres in one field, about 1 mile by 1/2 mile.  It is our goal to finish it today (and tonight).  The weather-man is predicting a chance of rain tonight, so we are eager to get this behind us today.  Frost this morning will delay our start a little more, but if it really is going to rain in the night, it will stay ‘dry’ after dark.  It could be a late night tonight!

It will be two weeks or more before the double-crop beans are ready.

One thing that strikes me about the day:  Is there anything more beautiful in nature than a clear October day in southern Indiana?
