Roadside mowing continues, and bin #7 of wheat is ready to be swept out.
A rain would be welcome, and there’s a chance of rain on Sunday. The days seem hot, (it’s 86ºF, perfect for corn and soybeans when there is an abundance of moisture) but not like 2012. Back then, we had 11 days in July of 100F+ temperatures! A couple cool days are predicted early next week, highs in the low 70s. That will be helpful for all this corn that is currently pollinating.
The DCB fields are looking pretty good. It’s great to see those beans coming through the wheat stubble. A year ago, we were still planting and replanting soybeans. The yield potential for the DCB crop should be > the 2013 crop!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, there was the yard that needed to be mowed.
We are ready for a relaxing weekend.
