Extreme High Temperatures

24 Jul

Last week I kept seeing this on my truck thermometer (and worse). The temps finally moderated back down to normal and below. (85-92) And we finally got some rain on most of my fields.

We even had a couple of overcast days. That is not too good for the crops, but it sure felt nice after 2 weeks of blazing sun and temps in the 100’s! P.S. I wrote this post 2 weeks ago and kept delaying it for other subjects. Now we are back to sweltering weather with no break in sight until October!

    It’s bad. The corn is dead and now pretty much all chopped up. There are a few beans in bloom but the pods are more than likely empty and talk is now about how many trees we are gonna lose over this.

    The ground is like dust. I have never seen it this bad before.

    Around here the ground is like concrete, the crops are alive but just barely. Maybe global warming is real?
