It’s been dry in Walsh County, North Dakota. David Fedjie says prior to light rains this past week, the last substantial rain was around June 7. “Around that time we had a two inch rain. Since then, there’s been smaller rain events.” Fedjie farms between Hoople and Crystal, North Dakota. He says the dry beans look okay from the road, but taking a closer look the navy beans are starting to ripen. “The pinto beans look better than the navy beans. I don’t know if the water will help them much. The fields are dried down. They’re holding their color better, too.”
