This being Minnesota the weather can change quickly, and it has been. We’ve had rain, then dry and windy, and now rain again. It sure makes getting field work done interesting.
Spraying weeds had been pushed off by the rain for several days, and the weeds were taking advantage of the extra time. Yesterday started dry and windy, the dry was all right, the wind was not. Once the wind went down I did get 130 acres sprayed before the sun went down. I got a bit of sleep, was up early and sprayed another 80 acres before the advance rain showers moved in. Now we are forecast to have rain for the rest of the morning. The rain showers are supposed to continue until early Sunday. I guess I get to go to that Farm Bureau meeting in Marshall today.
