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.
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!
#plant21 is moving along.
