    Just pick up some where around 2000 yards of fence line. It just behind the house. Vintage cubby should be ready for the fall season. Lots of hedge, mulberry and oak.

    Your going to be looking a an 90 acre field and with my eyes I cant see that far. Not sure a camera going to show it either. Its massive and going to take a good tire and chain set-up! ;)

    Locust around here seem to be in the bottom land. This is a very well drained field, but there is a back side with a good slope could be some in there.

    So you lined up a massive amount of wood within sight of your house? You lucky son of a ... Nice job my man. Makes me want to drive over from Montana just to help (and drink a few of your beers of course).

    That's a pick from 2007. This year so far once it get to 88 degrees you can count on a storm.

    Good thing I read all the posts first. That picture really threw me when I see the corn tasseled! You are ahead of us every year but that would be awesome to see it tasseled already. Most field corn around here is knee to waist high but there are many fields that won't make knee high by the 4th of July. Bad...

    Just a few miles north, I seen a few fields flooded. My place is just about normal and corn went in late but I think knee high by next Thursday if we get this rain tonight.

    Here, some guys got it in early, but then it kept raining every few days. Many had to bail out on corn and put in beans instead. All this rain isn't helping me in the woods, either. Ticks are thick and the undergrowth is heavy....can't see for crap out there. Need to find me a fence line! ;lol

    I've seen a couple fields that are starting to tassel out. It was so wet they either got it in early or late. Not many were able to get stuff in right on time. A lot of guys are having trouble getting beans in too. Lots of good looking hay this year, if you can put together a few dry days to get it out.

    corn around me got in very late. He planted in the rain. We have had Hot Sunny days
    with a good amount of rain at night, it is waist high already. looks to have grown 18" in the last week.
    I hate fence rows. I get a ton of mulberry/cherry out of them though.

    We were ready to take water from Satan this time last year.

    There has been no one cutting this line in over 50 years. There's a lot of meat in there. ;) That pic is a half mile off with an old cell phone in 2007. There BIG! :)
