Corn Sprouting

The planters have been rolling steadily for a couple weeks and the older fields are sprouted now.  We got a little rain last weekend that helped things along and the forecast is calling for more this weekend.  Hopefully it stays this frequent for the whole season.

Planted a week and a half before this picture was taken.  It came up fast.

Dryland corn.

We’re most likely in the clear as far as frosts go.  So far everything is looking good.  Let’s all pray it stays that way.  After last year, we need to hit a slam dunk on our yields.
