The ground dried up and crops look good, but need more rain sometime soon. I finally got on the downhill slide of fighting weeds (waterhemp). I think I will win.

Nice rain in some areas to extreme flooding in others. Dad got a nice 1.4 inches, while I got more than 4 inches in about an hour. I know just a little east of me they wish they only had 4. Corn and soybeans look fantastic. I hope it stays this way.

Beautiful rain showers fell across the area last week with totals from an inch to 2 inches. Crops look great. I hope it’s not to soon to say this, but I think we can put the planters away before July this year.
