It’s raining again this morning. Only .14″ (3.6mm) so far, but it looks and feels like more. After the weekend heavy rain, we were able to return to corn harvesting yesterday, and we finished off the final field of 2021 corn. That felt good to check that task off the list. But, rather than celebrate, we switched the combines over and moved over to Wheatland and started on some of the DCB (double-crop soybeans). We used the rest of the day into the evening. Cutting went better than I expected with the beans running 13.4 down to 12.9 moisture… a pleasant surprise. After completing two fields, we moved the combines back home and placed them in the shed ahead of today’s predicted rain. They are situated there now, waiting patiently for the next opportunity to cut more DCB.

So, of the 3 crops we harvest in the fall… corn, soybeans, and DCB… two of them are complete!
