It was a hot time in the corn field today. We set a new record high today and I was combining corn in shorts. That has got to be a first for me. On top of that the A/C is not working in the combine. The forecast is for more hot weather tomorrow.
Temperatures in the 80′s are not unheard of here in October, they are just not usual. The old record high for today was 84, today we had 87. It was really nice to stand in the shade every once in a while. I must have drunk a gallon of water this afternoon. The shower when I got home was really great.
Corn harvest is going great. So far we have harvested all of our corn at under 19% moisture. We put it in the bin and turn on the air. The hot humid air coming out of the bin says that the rest of the moisture is being pushed out of the corn. This will make some really good quality corn. Now if we get a good price for it, everything will be great.
