I know it is July and Iowa is hot in July. However, I hate the hot weather. It is 91 and over 100 indices so feels even more hot. Hot weather is usually good for the corn but it needs more rain to go along with it. We haven't been getting enough rain. Only 1/4 inch Saturday. The lawns are drying up already. They say we are going back into drought conditions again. That isn't good. The beans look so good right now. I have heard they need a certain amount of rain in August so hope we get it. The corn is getting so tall. You have to watch it on corners as you can't always see other traffic.
