Rain last week prevented fertilization

Last week started with a large rain and Saturday it rained some more.  It rained all day this Sunday. We only worked in the fields two hours chisel plowing in the middle of the week before we were rained out. Very little corn was harvested this week.  We will probably need a hard freeze before the rest of the corn will be taken off. I am glad I finished when I did. I have lots of liquid hog manure that I wanted to inject in the ground for next year's corn. That's not going to happen now.  I'll probably spread it on top after it freezes. I still have my combine to wash as well as my grain dryer. Those are jobs that I don't look forward to because I end up getting totally soaked. If it turns cold I'll probably rent a gas powered leaf blower and just use it to do the job.
