We are running cool all week in the 50/60s with rain. I've had so much rain that I had to support my sweet corn due to the roots not running deep.

I'm okay with it, the bucks are putting on nice head gear.

This has been the most frustrating year to make hay! I can't cobble together a decent window of opportunity to wrap up first cutting. The forecast has held an impeccable streak of being correct about rainfall.

It has been really tough here also. It will pass and life will go on. I am grateful for every day that the Good Lord allows me to roam His earth....even days that don't go as I would like for them.

Thats a tough forecast. Similar here. I’ve been dodging intermittent rain now for a month. It’ll rain just enough to dampen anything I cut. 
Made 99) 17% bales yesterday, then rained 5 minutes after I parked the baling tractor in the shed.  Still have 25 acres of ROH laying.
It rains just enough that I can’t get hay below 15% in a bale without excessive color loss....

Really beginning to wonder if wrapped bales would be a consideration for me, but don’t know if I have the ability to find a market for them

I can be optimistic and frustrated at the same time. It's more out of boredom really. I don't have a whole lot going on right now but I want to get finished with the last little bit.

Got .55 this morning. Really needed it and really appreciated it. Next few days are forecasted to be hot, uppper 80s low 90s, will dry it up fast. A few chances of rain also. I could stand to have a little hay rained on if it means rain to keep the pastures green and help the crops.

Been a little cooler than normal overall, though we've had a few hot days, lil above normal.  Rain was about normal I guess, til this past week we got 4.5 inches here at Needville for the week and I'm not sure how much at Shiner-- maybe 2 according to FarmLogs app... should know tomorrow when I get up there to check the gauge... 

 

Much needed and much appreciated!  OL J R :)
