    Looks like open water is coming to a hard freeze near you!

    Unless it floods, all of our oxbow lakes will be dry by duck season...no worries about freezing water. Our moist soil units will be okay as we can pump well water right in front of the blind and keep a hole open. Tonight is the first round of storms...see what happens with Grand River.

    When I looked at drought monitor it said things are dry and it sounded like we where going to get the corn planted. Hopefully these storms don't delay things too much.

    We were planted on 4/24. Just hoping for a nice steady weekly rain. Don't need any gully washers!!!!

    Do you generally plant milo? If you do try the shorter varieties cause, some will be nearly 6’ at the head. You also have to watch for head worms and corn ear worm, once it heads out. You’ll hear mention of sugar cane aphids but, probably won’t be an issue as far north as you are.

    Our farming efforts are hit and miss...Grand River normally wipes us out with a flood. The spike rush has been a real challenge to control and dry conditions are allowing us to get after it. We burnt it off, just sprayed it and now will disc the hell out of it.
