    Otah, the news says tonight you will have one of the best moons for harvesting. Are you working late?

    Nope, I was smart and let everyone else drink while I served. I only had a few.

    So you will not irrigate anymore before you harvest?

    Basically the crops die, then the dry down, then we harvest it. In a perfect world we would shell corn at about 17% moisture and beans about 15% if we are storing it in the bins.

    No idea...

    I really hope the weather does what they say... low to mid 70's... :D

    As long as there is sun and a little breeze we may shell some corn near the end of the week...
