It's hard to believe that 1 year ago today we started planting our 2009 corn and soybean crops. It was our latest start ever.
Today we finished planting soybeans. It is our earliest finish ever. This is despite the fact that we picked up some custom (for hire) fieldwork and added an additional 800 acres over what we planted last year. Much of the corn is out of the ground and off to the races. Early herbicide applications are nearly complete and seed sales are basically over. Somebody pinch me! It's a good year to finish early too -- in less than 3 weeks our family will be blessed with a new addition (and my wife Kristen says she's plenty ready too).
Here's hoping 2010 continues to make up for last year!
