Today we went out and checked our corn fields. We started planting corn about 10 days ago. We only got around 100 acres planted before it set in to raining. We've gotten 9" in two weeks.
With all that rain, we were worried about whether the corn seed had been washed away or drowned out.
Thankfully, as you can see, we have a pretty good stand of corn. We do have a few wet spots that didn't come up, and we'll have to replant a few rows up behind our house, but it could've been much worse!
Here is our official corn spotter at work. "Where's it at Daddy?"
"See the corn, Reed?"
"There it is!"
And here's a dern armadillo hole also in one of our corn fields. Well, they're in every field. You don't want to hit one of those suckers with a tractor tire. Heck, I think we've lost an entire tractor in one before.
