I can’t believe it! I’m creating dust! This is day 4 of no rain! A record for this year so far. Everybody is out getting their field work done before the next 4 days of rain start. I hope to finish planting beans tonight.
It’s official! The drought of 2012 is over! Hooray! BUT, the flood of 2013 has begun! It won’t stop raining! And when it does, it only stops for a day or two, then rains again. The few days in between rainy spells won’t let the fields dry out enough for us to continue to plant. Here’s this week’s forecast:
Will we get our corn planted by the May 31 deadline for crop insurance? Will we get our soybeans planted by the June 15 deadline? It’s out of our control at this point. The weather is the weather and Mother Nature makes all the decisions around here.
Us farmers are never quite satisfied, are we?
