It’s going to delay the start of soybean harvest well into the day again today. It’s likely we will crank up the combines about noon. Fog everywhere, and especially in the valleys this morning. The forecast is excellent, but this will allow us the time this morning to catch up other tasks. John had the GSI 2326 dryer running at 730 am! He is drying today the corn that was harvested yesterday afternoon. It should go fairly quickly, for the incoming moisture levels were 17-18%. Corn deliveries to GPC will begin on Wednesday morning.
The sunrise was especially eye-catching this morning. We are looking forward to a productive week in the soybean fields. It is apparent now that the double-crop soybeans (DCB) are getting ripe for harvest… the fields are more yellow than green now! They are turning fast!
Have a great week… and for our fellow farmers… be safe and enjoy this wonderful time of year!
James 5:7b NIV …see how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.
Yes, patience is required and helpful in this line of work…
