Farm Friday

This week on the farm we finished spraying our soybeans and now have moved onto finishing up several little jobs on the farm.  We also have started working on some large projects that have been on the to do list since spring started.

The big thing that has happened this week was that is RAINED!!!  Last Friday night we received 2 1/2 inches of rain on our home farm and then on Wednesday night we received an additional 1 1/2 inches.  We have been very pleased with the amount of rain we have received, especially when out to our east things are really dry and to our north things are flooded.

The rain this week, along with great temperatures has made for great growing conditions for our crops.  The corn in my "backyard" is growing strong.

And now the corn is officially taller than me!  Here is a photo that I took of me in the corn to give you an idea of how tall it is.

The soybeans are looking great in my "hog's backyard" too.  I feel like they have really started filling-in this week.

The beans are at the V5 and V6 stages and are as high as my knee.

I hope the nice temperature and nice rainfalls continue for us throughout the rest of the growing season!  Do you have any questions about corn or soybeans?  Ask me questions in the comments section and I'll answer them in my next Farm Friday post.
