Soybeans are ripening and dropping leaves. See lots of trees turning color. Pastures are all dried up feeding hay full time. Ponds are at their lowest levels ever. Seed corn harvest started the 5th of September. interesting that as dry as it has been I am hearing of larger than normal honey yields. My bees produced 70% more then last year. Grass in ditches is so dry it rattles. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #New London 1.5 SW on 9/11/2017
