We started harvesting rye last week and baled a little rye straw. That's probably going to be the big thing this week. The alfalfa is starting to bloom but the second cutting looks a little short so there may not be much tonnage. The sweet corn should be starting later this week. We could use some rain, but it isn't a problem yet. Last week's heat stressed the cattle a bit.
