We’ve been blessed by rain again here in southwest Minnesota. My gauge had four tenths in it so we’ll not finish corn planting until Monday.
We only have 80 acres of corn left to plant. Many are done with planting, but some are only getting a good start. With the cool temperatures I’m still not in a hurry.
Our trees are finally starting to show the growth we expect at planting time. We have not yet had the arrival of barn swallows we expect. Due to cool temperatures the insects are not here in the numbers to feed them.
The furnace seems to kick in every morning, but my solar collectors are providing heat for the house unless it’s cloudy. I may have to put some more wood into the boiler.
