Grafton - Jerseyville

Went west today.  It was a beautiful day.  Soil Temperature at 4 inches was 44 degrees.  Air temperature went as low as 30.  I did not see anything needing harvested today.  It seems nearly impossible for it to be done before Nov. 1.  Lots of fertilizer going on.  I expect Nitrogen to start Monday if it stays cool at night.  I would rather wait another 2 weeks, but I know people are antsy.  I was on a farm today that had some well maintained terraces and Grassed Waterways.  A retire NRCS guy always likes to see that stuff.  Also some great no-till. The no-till ground was the softest I have probed this fall.  Ground was in very good shape.  Dry fertilizer and lime were the main activities today.
