I worked in the American Bottoms around Valmeyer today. Harvest is progressing about like everywhere. Still a little corn standing, Some beans are still a little green, some ripe ones being harvested. I saw wheat out of the ground for the first time. Other areas had wheat sowed and some was being sowed. Monroe County is traditionally atop 10 wheat producer in Illinois. Weather was wonderful. Red tail hawks are beautiful soaring on a day like today. I think I saw a Peregrine Falcon as well.
