Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On Thursday, April 30 we started planting corn and we didn’t stop until yesterday. We no-till everything. The first corn we planted was 300 acres of custom work and that gave our no-till fields a little longer to dry.I was glad to get some rain. I was hoping to get a half-inch or so to get the chemicals working. On Saturday and Sunday we had anything from .45 up to 1.7 inches in the Delphos area. In Hancock County there were areas that didn’t get any rain. We took yesterday off because of the Mother’s Day curse. We didn’t do anything yesterday and I was glad we stopped because it got wet pretty fast. They are talking about some heavy rain today.The majority of corn we planted that first week is up. There are some beans up. We started sewing beans on that Friday or Saturday and those are up. I am just about done planting. I only have 16 aces of corn to go and 200 acres of beans. That 16 acres has not been fit yet. It is wetter ground, so we may not be doing that this week yet because it looks like we are getting rain and cooler temperatures.Boy that 85-degree weather really helped move things along. Everything got in the ground with warmer temperatures and I feel comfortable with how everything went in. I am really pleased with the stands we have out there so far. The wheat is really coming on and it looks better now that you can’t see the holes from the road. We had a heck of a run there.
