I worked south of Valmeyer today.  There is lots of wheat sowed in the American Bottoms of Monroe County.  Most of it was looking good.  This is a contrast to the USDA wheat condition report that says it is the worst crop in years.  I saw one field of corn to be harvested and a few fields of double crop soybeans that still have green stems.  I worked in mud for the first time this fall.  I was in a wet area and about a half inch of rain fell through the night.  Some of the wheat ground I worked on had just recently been planted and it was rough.  Rain will help get it out of the ground.

Love the picture, I have not been in that area for a few years. Very large expanse of bottom land
