|My Farmer planting one of our last fields|
|I took this picture this morning of the corn field around our house.|
It was planted April 29th, 7 1/2 weeks ago.
This field has seen snow and flooding since it was planted.
This field was sprayed this week and well as had wet spots replanted.
And you can see how far behind we are. The old saying is "knee high by the 4th of July" but in reality we strive to be at least chest high and tasseling by the 4th of July. This year - we'll be aiming for knee or waist high!
The only nice thing about still doing spring field work I guess is the MP got her first tractor ride last week! I'm not sure I should be happy or sad that she was able to get a tractor ride at such an early age. If it would have been a normal year she would have had to wait till this fall.
Have you been having a wet spring this year like we have?
