The weather has stayed dry and planting has finally begun. This has got to be one of the latest starts to planting I ever seen. Not everyone has stated yet, but each day means more in our area begin planting. The last two days have seen almost a third of our corn planted.
The ground is cold and the trees have not yet begun to leaf out, but the Barn Swallows are back. I was really surprised when one buzzed my tractor yesterday and I’ve heard them in my yard. They are going to be a little short on insects to eat until we get some warmer temperatures.
The last two days have started out at 28 degrees. Today did get to be a really nice day with 55 for a high and little wind. I was stripped down to my tee shirt this afternoon and loving it. I was happy to spend my lunch time next to my new pond. It’s not finished yet, but it still is a nice place to sit.
