Corn and Beans..."Episode 2"...

They're still growing  (they'd better be!!)...

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of the tiny corn and bean plants that were beginning to grow in our fields. We've had a lot of moisture, which is good...but the temps have been cooler than usual, so the growth in the fields hasn't been quite as fast as some years.

Here is the corn today, 16 days later...

And here are the beans...

The corn always seems to grow faster than the soybeans, but when you figure how much taller it has to grow than the beans do before maturity, it makes sense.  If we continue the pattern of plenty of moisture and the temps soar next week like they're calling for, everything should grow like crazy!

All in all, it's doing really well for 3 1/2 weeks.


  1. It's always so nice seeing a post from you so we can see what is growing in your part of the world. Your corn field looks so pretty. I hope that you'll have favourable growing conditions for your soy beans and corn.

    Our cows are so happy in the pastures. They are constantly being moved from one pasture to the next as they mow the grass. The electric fences keeps them in.

    Have a great weekend.
    Smiles & hugs, Julia

  2. I hope things continue to go well!

  3. I love when you post about about how fast everything is growing. It is so cool here today. With clouds. I can't believe it. I hope you get warmer weather to make everything shoot up.

  4. You are like us...we enjoy watching the corn and beans grow! Although, the weeds seem to grow just as fast and they aren't a joy to watch LOL!


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
