    Crop Progress, Changing Season Ignorance

    Canadian winds brought much cooler temps the last week. The morning dew/moisture on the crops have delayed combining till afternoons into the night. It was 60 F/15 C degrees in my house this morning unlike the normal 85 F/29 C I have gotten used to. Changing of the seasons brings significant milestones I try to refrain well past the norm. Shutting the windows in your house, wearing a jacket, turning on the heat in house/car and craving hibernation foods (soup and scotch ale). If everyone could refrain from doing these things, we can pretend it is still summer.

    Crop Progress, Durum 90% Harvested, Last year...43%

    Looking at our harvest progress it is shocking how behind we were last year. This time last year, spring wheat was at 67%, now this year 92% above the 88% 5-year average. Durum which was hit very heavy last year with pre harvest sprout is now 90% harvested, last year 43%. Aside from grasshoppers and wireworms this harvest has been above average. We are very thankful for cooperating weather patterns and the hard-working producers in the treasure state. With harvest close to an end we can put 2020 behind us, as we plant next years crop which could only be a brighter future.
