Rain last Thursday night.


I finished spraying the corn and soybean burn down on Thursday. 10 pm i looked at the radar and only rain on radar was in Cincinnati. So i figured i would start a new field of soybeans friday morning. No such luck, 3:15 am i awake to rain! Looked out my window there is already 1 foot of water in my back yard and the creek is full. At 5 am 2.5 feet of water in my back yard 1 foot in field! We had 2 inches, 30 miles away it was .6. I heard marion had 5 inches. The pastures are rough and we have been rotating them every 4 days or so to try and stay ahead of the grass. My barley clover cover crop did well despite late planting and all the cold wet weather over the winter. Not much erosion there at all. Some corn planted around and beans. I only have 15 acres of beans planted.
How are you getting along?
Mark

I'd say you are 15 acres ahead of anybody around here!
