And some pictures I took from the flat while I was baling first cutting a couple weeks ago. New seeding in the foreground. First picture is the home farm, then the neighbors' places.

Looking good Bill!!! I especially like the farmstead pictures from the flat!!! 
Has your area been getting moisture, I’ve been hearing it’s dry out east?!

Ours is chest high, more or less.

We have had the 90's with high humidity.

Super corn growing weather but hard on the people.

We could use a touch of rain, just to keep up, but not a lot.

If this keeps up, with no hard water, it could be a bumper crop.

Keeping our fingers crossed.

That corn is way ahead of most around here! Ours is just getting to waist height and we really need rain. It has been 90* and dry and corn is starting to roll up, hoping for some thunderstorms to pop up but they have been few and far between. Usually it gets really humid and we have a storm, this heat wave has been lower humidity. Haven't had more than a quarter inch in 3 weeks.

Most of the rain for the last week-10 days has been hit and miss. 2 weeks ago, I was rigging up a water tank on a trailer to water the gardens. Then we got  1 1/2" of rain over 4 days, so I didn't need the trailer.Now its getting dry again.

Wife and I went to Fry's in Muncy, Pa, for New Holland baler parts (2 1/2 hrs away), 10 days ago, and there was corn curling near the NY/PA state line then. 2nd cutting will be short.

We went to Tyler TEXAS over the weekend. Left to early to see the local corn Friday, but did notice that by the time it got light enough to see, we were around Wichita, the corn was mostly tasseled out. 
Today I see the corn a couple miles from the house is tasseled. Saw some Milo headed out around Dallas?

Most of ours Is shoulder high, and rolled up like a cigar! Some rain soon would be nice, but forecast is in the nineties and little chance of moisture for the next week yet.

I know the corn out this way in the south east is not looking good. Areas around me have been getting some rain but it's been 4 weeks since we have any that amounts to anything. There's some that was planted in early may that is barely knee high if that and curled bad.

right here in central wis. we have a field that was sod last year, spring plowed , liguid manure and 240 pounds of starter, never been this good before about 5 plus feet tall and a dark green, however it is not all good , just a half of a mile away, another old sod field, we tried no till, right in the sod, germinated good, but the army worms also liked it a lot, only about 2 feet tall and uneven, generally most corn this year is very nice, a lot better than the last few years, we are cutting peas and triticale, some is over 4 feet tall, way to thick in some spots,   have never seen it that thick before ,

Great pics Bill.   Nice corn you have there.    Walked out in dads tonight.  It is over my head.    I’m 6’3”.   We could use some rain but crops look really good here.

North Alabama and Southern KY have corn tasseled out, and ears showing. Got me to thinking, when was the earliest corn was ready for picking for some of you? When I was a kid, it was late September or October before it got picked.

I think I ground some HMEC (to feed) one year in late Sept. usually not ready for shell corn until late Oct or early November.
