Soybeans, 4th Cut (Hay), More Corn, and Almost Sunflower Harvest

It's been a busy seven days, trying to get the most out of the good weather.  We seeded Winter Rye in the field out back of our house, and in several others as well.

By today, the soybeans should be done - but that's not the end of harvesting, we still have corn "snapplage" to make. Snapplage is basically a cut, crushed cob with the grain still attached to it - there's some leaves in the mix as well.

The sunflowers are at 14% moisture, we need 9% or 10% to combine and store them.
