I heard on the radio that the government claims there is a larger crop of corn than expected so food prices will go down in about six months.  ?????  I haven't seen any bumper crops in and around my area. How about you ?
I still have a few posage stamp patches of soybeans to harvest .  They were the third planting of drought/drownded spots.  About one hundered acres of corn that is a bit wet to combine just yet.
I did finish picking my pumpkin pie crop today . had enough to give some away.

It's been pretty much the same around here Don, a good yield for the most part but nothing special.  There is still a lot to harvest around here yet, I'd say beans are about 1/2 to 2/3's done and a lot of corn to go so I guess we'll see what the final tally the USDA puts out, I'm in no hurry to sell though.  DISCLAIMER  I'm usually wrong. ;)  Enjoy the pie  :)

They're pretty much in full speed with the beans .The corn will be late because of late planting .It wouldn't surprise me if it's into Dec before they get done .

Potatoes are about done here, if they aren't it's going to be a long time before they go at it again with rain this week. Some corn and beans still stand. The only reason I can comprehend the beans not being cut around here is they were tied up with potatoes. But there are others reasons that I'll not mention. All I know is you'd wonder to. :D

We've gone from harvest to fall tillage. I got myself a new JD disc ripper and am waiting on the pig manure haulers to finish up so I can take it out to play with.

Here in northwest Ohio the beans are about off but some of the guys cut terrible ruts getting them off and even driving around some areas. Still alot of standing corn but there working on that also. The last three days it has dried pretty good. Just finished a job northwest of me seven miles and it was wet up to yesturday afternoon and I got one load out, then last night it rainned a few tenths but I went back this morning and got the last two loads out. Tomarrow morning I will pick up the skidder but will run the lane a few times to get the groves smashed down.Sounds like the weather is going to go down hill this coming week.
