Corn planting continues for Midwesterners amid unusual weather conditions. That reads like a newpaper headline, but yet, it’s oh so true. Here in Shelby County, Iowa, it’s been hot, cold, windy, calm, drizzly, dry … all within just a few days. For those reading this who are not from the Midwest, you’re probably experiencing your own issues of weather, as well. Our hearts go out to the folks on the southern receiving end of the fury from the Mississippi River’s flooding. Ron was in western Nebraska last week and commented how dry everything seemed and how much dust was being kicked up. Will we ever see the kind of spring we enjoyed when we were kids?
We’re getting the field corn in and the popcorn (12 acres) has been planted! Hooray! Then it will be time to plant soybeans and from there the rush will be on to rotary hoe and cultivate all the crops to kiss any weeds goodbye.
It may be a stinky spring weather-wise, but it is spring and the work continues. Love it, love it, love it. (But, then again, I’m not the one putting in the long hours!)
Happy spring to you, and thank you for your support of ROSMANN FAMILY FARMS!
