It was great to get out on the road today. I headed SE from Des Moines to Ottumwa, Oskaloosa, Knoxville and Chariton. The crops looked good, but certainly have had enough rain. Hopefully they will dodge rains the rest of the week. Some hay was down, though quite a bit needed to go up yet. I did see some corn almost completely shading the rows.
