   Planted 160 acres corn on April 8 & 9, 38 acres on May 2, and 175 acres May 15 & 16 to finish up, a full month later than preferable. Took me 40 days to plant 375 acres and that was about half my intended acres.

  Well it sure took some time to get to the field but in the end we got all our acres in to great soil moisture and just about exactly when we'd like to have corn in. It sure isn't like the old days. When we hit the filed now it's amazing what we can get done in very little time.
