Sunday morning, Mother’s Day, and it’s raining.

The corn is in the ground and temperatures have been rising giving hope for the nice weather we need for crop growth.  We finished planting corn yesterday!  There are many in our area who have finished corn planting and some have prepared ground for soybeans.  We were blessed with a week of almost rain free weather.  This allowed us to do what so many farmers across the country could not do.  We are indeed blessed.

Not all, even only a few miles away, have been so lucky.  You do not have to travel far to find water standing in fields.  Those with livestock have been cleaning barns and pits so for them planting has had to wait.

We have some repairs to make on equipment that will slow down soybean planting, but not for long.  There will be plenty to do in the next weeks.  Hope you all can get your planting done also.
