The yields have been from the low 60s up to the low 80s. Those highs have been some of the best beans we’ve ever had. They are all non-GM beans and with the premium we can get from them they will do pretty well. We have the county fair this week so the combine will be stopped today. We are headed to the fair for the hog show.The stems have still been green on some of these varieties and it has been slow going for bean harvest in some of our fields. We planted some rye as an experiment in corn stalks to see if we can get some early straw next year and it sure won’t hurt the soil either.The weather has been really nice. I am glad the hurricane went back out the other direction and didn’t head this way. Without mud it has been a lot easier to get trucks and equipment in and out of the fields this fall so far.We are two-thirds done with corn and when we finish beans we could have all of our corn off in another five or six good days. The stalk quality depends on the variety. Certain varieties are weathering the stress of the year better. We don’t want to leave it stand out there any longer than we have to. We have found a little bit of mold in the corn but not enough to be docked on what we have hauled in. It looks like Diplodia on the ears in a couple of varieties. Certain varieties handled the stress better than others.
