We are in the last corn field to be harvested, and it could and should get done today. The complicating factor is that the trucks must also deliver some corn to market this afternoon, in order to make room for the incoming wet corn from this last field (Freddie). This will definitely slow the progress, as the combines will do some waiting on trucks today.
Even so, the end is in sight, and it will feel good to get this facet of the Harvest of ’14 completed.
We think we can turn our attention to the DCB right away, as they appear to be ripe and ready. If they are actually dry enough for harvest, that could be done in 3-4 days.
We are grateful for the good yields of corn and soybeans. The wet weather presented some challenges, but this week has brought us beautiful October days. One famous poet said there is nothing so rare as a day in June, but I would contend that a clear October day in southern Indiana is the best of all!
The trees in this part of Indiana are nearing their peak of color.
