A Long Haul
Nov 09 2009
Saturday night in Terry’s field.
BGC sitting in a harvested field of soybeans. We are close to getting all of Terry’s beans out. With all the wet and cold weather this summer and fall, we are now getting deep into November for harvest. Days are short and nights are long, but the crop has to get out. This week we will haul some corn to the grain elevators until they get full between 10 am and 1 pm of wet corn (dryer can not dry it as fast as farmers can harvest it) and then harvest corn to go into our own drying bins and finish soybeans. Usually this time of year the corn has naturally dried down to a level that it can be stored at, but not this year. Harvested through mud Sunday and still have water standing in some fields. This is a season for the record books, still waiting on that global warming.
