Despite the lack of rain, the corn and beans keep on growing.
To give you an idea of how tall the corn is I walked a couple rows into the corn field. The corn is at my chest or higher, granted I'm 5'2" tall, but still, it is quite a bit higher than it looks from the road.
As for our soybeans they too have been growing nicely.
When looking close at the soybeans you can see that they are at the V3 development stage.

Temporary corn pile storage is common in our area during the fall. There is so much corn that comes into our local elevator that they don't have enough bin storage or can't truck or rail it out fast enough, so they store the corn under a covered pile.
