Frost on the pumpkin

Some areas of Minnesota picked up a bit of frost this morning.  We were in Burnsville overnight and drove back home in the early morning.  Our car had frozen water on the roof and in many places we saw frost on cars and roofs.  On our drive home the temperatures ranged from 32 up to 40, so it was a brisk morning.

Farm fields through out our drive were much the same.  Low areas either still had water standing in them, or showed evidence of being under water.  Some areas had dried out enough that the soybeans had been harvested.  There are a lot of bean fields left to be harvested.

We are over half done with bean harvest.  So far we have left very little.  There have been a few places we have left ruts, but I have yet to get so far in I could not back out.  All of our water has gone away, but the ground is still wet.  I expect to finish soybean harvest on Tuesday if everything holds together.
