We are loving the weather forecast! Looks like we’re in for a streak of warm and dry days! And the baby corn and soybeans (the ones that survived the flooding) are loving that too.
Had a late night last night. Pat and I drove over to St. Louis for a Cardinals’ game. We were guests of the Nat’l FFA organization, and we were fortunate enough to be hosted in the Monsanto suite. It was a neat time. We met a young farmer and his wife (@rmellenc on Twitter), some people who work at Monsanto, and some folks with national farm organizations.
We enjoyed everything about the evening…except the final score of the game… the Cubs won 3-2. Still, it was fun to be there, and the weather was perfect!
It was a long 3 hours home, but we made it across Illinois on US 50, with very light traffic!
