Well folks, we finally finished harvesting. I know a lot of you are still working hard around the state, but I was sure feeling like it was never going to end for us here. Most of the crops in the county are out. There has been a large amount of ammonia applied this week. I have seen people doing fall herbicide applications and fall tillage, too. We will start spraying ASAP, and we also got the tile company in a field to do some tiling. There is still a lot of work to be done to wrap up the year, and I, for one, will be happy to see the backside of 2017. What a crazy farming year.
