Why did we start a couple weeks late? Well, it all goes back to when we planted the corn and soybeans in May and June. This spring was very wet so we ended up planting our crops late. We don't harvest our crops until they are mature and then we like to have them dry in the field.

This week has been moving a little slowly but we're just happy to be making progress. We've combined around 10% of our soybean acres and 5% of our corn acres as of today.
