Farm Friday

Today's Farm Friday edition is coming a little later than I normally like to post because I've been away from home for most of the day.  Things have been busy on the farm this week.  We have been working on several jobs and projects around the farm, as well as taking care of things like certifying our acreage at the FSA-USDA office.

In "my backyard," the corn is still coming along well, even though we haven't had any rain this week.

The corn is now over 6 feet tall and is about ready to tassel.

My "hog's backyard" of soybeans is coming along well too.

The soybeans are at V7...

or at R1.  R1 means the soybeans have begun their Reproductive Stages and are flowering.

Do you have any questions about the development stages of corn or soybeans?  Be sure to ask any questions or make any comments in the comment section below.  If you farm, how are your crops coming along?

Also, be sure to let me know what your favorite summer pork food is on my Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe post to win a pig silicon pot holder.


  1. We actually got hail on half of our crop last weekend, so NOT good! It was a BEAUTIFUL crop, but at least we had hail insurance :(

  2. Hopefully you're still able to harvest something at the end of the season in addition with your hail insurance.
