It’s a cloudy and chilly (45ºF, 7C) day to begin the month of April. We did some more prep work for #plant20. We topped off the soybean seed tender truck. John checked the sprayer for leaks, cleared away the winter antifreeze, and he has it ready to roll. The water tender trailer has been filled. So, we are hoping by week’s end we can get the sprayer in the field to put a herbicide on the wheat crop. It feels like we’re not too far off from the busy season.
We don’t seem to be limited much by the social distancing or other current restrictions. Businesses that support farming are still open and ready for the spring rush. Our delay now is weather related.
