    We got about a third of our corn in. We are done with corn and we don't do beans. We did not get to plant any wheat this year. We will plant a lot of forage when it gets dry enough.

    What is the world coming to when it’s too wet to do anything in South Dakota.

    Here in NW Iowa I have had three full days to work. Otherwise it’s been a morning here, an afternoon there. Can’t get much done that way.

    Talked to three more today. Two got 95% done and one got 40% of corn in. Did hear from one that two of the neighbors took prevent planting on a total of 12-13 quarters.

    SD is at 64% of the corn crop planted. Way behind normal but considering how wet eastern and south eastern part of the state is I would say getting 2/3’s in is pretty darn good and there will be almost normal stands in some parts of the state. Not sure if that number will end up going much above 70 as I would expect most to have stopped putting corn in at this point. Will be interesting to see what the bean numbers end up finishing at.

    As expected flowers way behind also. Will be interesting to see how many of those get in the ground. To say the least it will be an interesting year for sure. ND was much closer to normal so that may end up being an option for some people??? We will be in SD and what ever it is like will be appreciated and enjoyed.

    What will be interesting is how late the harvest will be. If it is a late harvest and they are predicting a cool summer the corn could be standing awhile.
