    I have given up on waiting for a clear day to fix some things outside. I had a fence blown down if February and need to set nine new 4x4 into concrete. I'll just have to use rain instead of water from the hose.

    I can open the pool without adding water too!

    The 10 day forecast shows strong chances of rain every day.

Unfortunately nothing we can do about it. But I am sure we will all feel some pain from it at the grocery.
    How late in the season can corn & soy beans etc be planted and harvested?

    Just north of indy here we planted corn (110 day!) on friday, I heard a lot of guys say Saturday would be their cutoff but a lot of times that depends on what kind of crop insurance they have. It has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and a guy that pays a lot for crop insurance seems to be less motivated to plant because your payments are based on a five year average and they can take the prevented planting payment instead of dinging their 5 year average (hurting them later) and possibly collecting at the end of season. A guy that doesn't buy as high end insurance is more motivated to plant, and that same guy generally may have an old school mentality that believes an early June planted corn crop can still do ok. A lot of insurance decisions are based on how highly leveraged you are. We have a higher level of insurance but we're pretty committed to planting as we have a contract to raise non gmo food grade corn, and got it all in, barely, but have many neighbors who don't. We are extremely thankful for what we have in.
    Beans can still go in for a while but the forecast doesn't look good.
    As far as harvested late, there is no limit except the crop going down. There are actually fields around here that still have last years corn in them as of the beginning of this planting season, due to a wet 18 harvest season. The real problem with late planted crops is the threat of an early frost. I grew up hearing stories of 1974, when it didn't stop raining til end of May, no till was unheard of so the seedbed was cloddy with poor seed to soil contact, IIRC when it stopped raining it really stopped, and then, for the grand finale, it frosted in September, before crops were mature.
    Drain tile pays, we're seeing that. Again.

    I think the Illinois farmers have it right, just give up on planting corn and have a big party.
    We have a nice BIG lake to have that party on now... Just grab what floats, throw booze on it and get plastered.

    Yes, and that will follow through to chem/fert/seed retailers (which I don't feel too awful sorry for) livestock feeders, truckers/grain haulers, local and regional elevators and maybe even Chicago will notice at the board of trade.
