It is still very cold and going to be colder. 16 predicted for tonight. Harvest is wrapping up in most areas although many people still have some to do. Ground is frozen at night. If you insist on fall N application, this might be the time to do it, but don't forget the N-serve.

Late Fall Weather

Most of the leaves have dropped except for some Oaks. Cool temperatures will make outdoor work less fun. I got some mittens that open up to fingerless gloves. they help a lot with gripping the throttle handlebar. I also bought some Carhart bibs to keep out the cold. They help too, but sometimes it gets too warm to wear them.

Harvest Progress

In our area things are starting to open up. 80 to 90 percent of soybeans are harvested and maybe 50 % of corn is harvested. Mississippi River bottoms in Pike County are probably 80 to 90 % harvested.
