I found this ear of corn last week when scouting a population plot. The size of the ear lifted my spirits after looking at drought stricken corn for most of the day. This picture is a little play on words from early days of Dekalb corn when the slogan was “The Mortgage Lifter”.
I attended the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis this weekend. It was great to see agriculture and American ethanol being promoted at the track and on the cars. These cars make a lot of noise and go very fast powered by corn ethanol! Thank you to Carl for the tickets!
The cooler temperatures this past weekend were a much needed relief from the seemingly endless hot temperatures.
The corn is dying fast, harvest appears to be 2 to 3 weeks away.
The harvest equipment is nearly ready to roll!
