White Flag

We surrender.

After checking at Huey this morning, I determined that we could replant a few acres there– the areas where the heavy rain killed the soybeans.  10.9 acres.  In other areas of Huey Flat, you can see flood waters from White River sweeping (again, for the 5th time) into the bayous.  So, I traveled to Huey this afternoon and planted the 10.9 acres that were dry enough to replant.  After that, the soybean planter was unhooked and stored in the quonset building at Huey.  I am convinced that by the time that the other acres now underwater will be dry enough for replanting, it will be too late on the calendar.  I guess it’s time to say ‘when’.

The JD 1890-1910 soybean planter sits quietly in the quonset building at Huey.  The planting season was very extended this year.  Never before have we planted soybeans this late in the year.  We will see how it turns out.
