Re: Garden City, Iowa

Had over an inch of rain last night. That's probably why your crocs were muddy.

Our profile is full thus why the ponds are full

Thanks for stopping by

Re: Garden City, Iowa

Wellsville, KS

Different story here. Beans, 8 inch rows, just above knee high. No pods below 6 inches. Beans are flowering nicely, some 2 inch pods - mostly smaller and most just out if flower. This field is moist - beans on beans and I was able to stick last years bean stalk in the ground and dig up dirt. A lot if corn here is fired all the way to tassel. Some looks good - most doesn't. Beans in 30 inch rows not canopied - I need to look at a corn field down the road.

Re: Garden City, Iowa

Corn here - bad. Field was a little weedy - not bad. But any weeds at all, and the corn was a nubbin. Crop fired all the way up. Corn just starting to dent. I could put my hand around the largest cob I saw. Very shallow kernel development. What I saw here from the road on the way up north on Friday is real - the crops here are seriously hurt. Corn 70- Bu, beans, maybe mid 20's, they're tough though because they have some water now, and may do better. Not good.

Re: Garden City, Iowa

I'm supposed to get out and walk every hour or two, so this gives me a chance to get out and do something fun, instead of just walking around a wayside. As long as I don't get shot or slammed in jail.

Braums at Emporia next. Don't know Braums - next time you're down this way - look them up.

I don't know about Peter Pan, but I do know Braums. For you all now familiar, do a search on the internet. It's quite the business plan.

My last off the farm Job sold them all the feed mixers they used on their dairy. I agree, they do have an impressive business plan, completely eliminate the middle man.
