Warming trend

Friday, April 23, 2021

After the cold nights of Tuesday (with snow!) and Wednesday, the weather is trending warmer.  Highs in the low 80s are predicted early next week.  I guess if you don’t like the weather, just wait a bit, and it’ll change for sure.

Monday’s sunrise…

We are returning slowly to the fields to  plant, as the soils dry out and are ready for us.  I need 2-3 days to finish the soybean planting.  Ross may finish corn today, but he will have to return in a week or two to plant some acres at the Freddie farm that he must drive around today.  Those are just too muddy today, but will dry soon.

I planted at the Crook farm yesterday, south of Wheatland.  The seed went into the ground pretty nicely.

We are making progress on #plant21, and we are grateful that the bulk of our planting looks like it could be accomplished in April.

I checked the earliest-planted soybeans, and they are just about to emerge from the soil!

Scrape away a thin layer of soil to find these soybeans are nearly out in the sunshine!

#plant21 is moving along.
