The sun has dried out the ground, and the planters are rolling as quickly as they can. The farmers have been patiently waiting for their opportunity to get their corn planted. If the weather stays good, there won't be much corn left to plant in our area by the weekend. Now Mother Nature just needs to turn up the thermostat! It is supposed to be below freezing again tonight.

Spring and Fall are really great times of the year. I love that everything is so busy, and we make a lot of progress in a short amount of time. It also means that we will soon get to care for this wonderful new crop that is emerging. We enjoy caring for the crops during the growing season and nurturing the land that the crops grow on. Farming is a very rewarding lifestyle!!
