|Happy with this field. Pretty much weed-free|
|Happy with this field too.|
Well, the long term forecasts were accurate. This is the warmest June and July that I can remember; we've had the longest string of over-80 days in... well, forever I think. At least as long as records have been kept. And the corn is loving it.

So while I'm happy with the weather, I'm starting to get worried about the lack of rain. We haven't had measurable rain in more than a month; which really hasn't slowed the corn down much, but I can't imagine that it won't soon. It's only planted 9" between the plants in the row, and that's too close, apparently, for drought conditions.
