The past week was about as nice as gets. Our area had around 1 to 2 inches of rain. The corn in Northern Illinois has a perfect dark green look to it. As the corn gets taller it does cover up a lot of the thin stands and uneven areas though. Guys are finishing up spraying before things are too tall. We have been busy side dressing nitrogen with our sprayer. It gets a little challenging on 20" rows, especially when the wind blows the leaves back and forth across the row. It's nice being able to give the crop a late boost of N though. It was nice to see President Trump in Iowa tonight to talk and learn about technology in Ag. The general public has no idea what farming is actually like.
This was a perfect weekend weather wise for baseball. It doesn't get much better than that! Today is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. They only get shorter from here!
Have good rest of the week!
