WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES. LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME WE WERE HAVING RECORD WARM TEMPERATURES WITH LITTLE RAIN AND BOTH CORN AND SOYBEANS PLANTED. ON MONDAY MAY 20 WE FINISHED CORN PLANTING AND HAD RAIN AGAIN THAT NIGHT. WE HOPE TO START SOYBEAN PLANTING TOMORROW THE 24TH. IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE US A WEEK TO GET THE SOYBEANS IN THE GROUND BUT THE FORCAST IS FOR MORE RAIN OVER THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. AFTER LAST YEAR THOUGH WE WILL NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE MORE THAN ADEQUATE RAINFALL. OUR NCGA FIELD HAS BEEN PLANTED AND IS LOOKING GOOD. WE WILL BEGIN SIDE DRESSING NITROGEN IN TWO WEEKS.
