    Somewhere south of us for sure. Farming is a bust here. Nothing planted and it's too late for hybrid corn, let alone soybeans. Only bright spot is winter wheat but the damp conditions will breed fungus so the crop won't be worth much.

    Checked the rain gauge this AM, another 3/4" last night. Fields are contunually flooded here My bright spot, if you will, is my hay. It's a forest out there and square bales will probably push 8 bucks each if you can get it off (which I will because I never get anxious). I'll take it off, go in and lay on 46 urea and cut in late fall again. My other fields are all for round bales and those are pre-contracted so it's all sold anyway.

    In total, we have received around 7" of precip in the last 30 days and only ONE day over 70. Every other day has been in the 60's and 40's at night. It's global warming, just ask Al Gore... (idiot).

    Probably going to be a number of farmers around here go tits up this year. The producers around here always have to have the latest and greatest green machines and those payments don't stop. Greenstone and JD credit don't care if they make money or not so I can see some good foreclosure auctions coming. May buy a green machine if I can get one for payments due.

    One thing that the average Joe don't understand is that the Farm bill and it's crop subsidies only cover the inputs (fertilizer, herbicide / pesticide) not the labor involved or the machinery payments, so a leveraged farmer is on the negative side before they even fit a field. They are all leveraged to the max around here...

    Except me. My philosophy is buy wen you can afford to pay for it and run it until it's shot and rebuild it so, I'm not leveraged at all. I even have money in the bank yet (from last season).In closing, don't know where the warm dry weather is, but it sure ain't here....

    Right now it's in my part of Tennessee! HOT and dry. We had over twice our normal annual rainfall in the first 4 1/2 months of this year, but here on "old Rocky Top" with so little soil on top of the rock, two days without rain and it's dangerously dry! We've had a full week of hot and no rain. I've been putting large amounts of ice cubes in the bird bath to cool the water enough so that the birds can actually get in and take a bath!

    Congratulations to you for being wise about how you spend and DO NOT SPEND money! Farming has always been really hard and iffy, but it seems to be getting a lot more difficult, even as there are fewer and fewer farmers left.

    I think that the heat is all down south. The past couple of weeks have been hot and humid. We've had so much rain that I haven't even bothered checking the lawn sprinkler system this year. It's on the agenda for this week though.

    We just had a small farm that's been in the family about 100 years, running about 50 head of cattle. It was always just a hobby and a write -off … and a lot of hard work. We're now the third generation and we're all in our 70s. No one in the next generation is remotely interested. We gave up raising cows a couple of years ago and now lease it to a neighbor. We baled our own hay and down here with a little bit of rain we could get three cuttings a year which carried us through the winter.

    Strange, I still miss those cows but I don't miss the work at all. To be honest, I don't know why anyone even bothers with a small farm anymore.
