I was reminded to day of another old farmers saying, rain falls 90 days after fog.  We’ve had several days of fog now and the timing of it promotes a bit of concern.  Ninety days from now we should be planting corn.

With all of the snow on the ground we are already assured wet ground in the spring.  Now if you add rain for a week just as we should be planting we will have problems.  The only good thing about this is that it would be the start of planting.  However if the wet would continue planting will be delayed.

For those with corn still in the field a late spring could be a real challenge.  They must finish harvest and then start planting.

All of this is speculation.  In 90 days we could see a dramatically different scenario.  We shall see what happens.
