Almost Harvest Time
This has been a very strange weather year. We had a very wet spring. It was so wet that planting was delayed by about three weeks and, our summer was extremely dry. The corn plants are starting to turn brown because it is so dry and they are very stressed. The cobs are now about 75 percent developed. Once the plants turn brown up to the cobs no more rain will help. At this point, the plant will be dead and it will be time to harvest the crop.
