Wow!! What a good stretch of weather we are having in our area. After today is over we will be about half done with our corn planting. This has been the longest stretch of work we have had in the spring in more than two years. There is lots of activity this past week ranging from soybean harvest, anhydrous application, corn planting and lots of ground being worked. The soil is not in very good shape. It seems to be hard and cloddy form all of the moisture the past two years. We have some ground that could use a little rain and some that is still too wet to work on. With all of the warm dry weather you would think that it would dry out, but with all of the compaction last year the ground is having a hard time doing that. Some people in our area are almost done planting and some have not started yet. It all depends on how much work they had to do from last fall. With a lot of anhydrous being applied in the spring a lot of guys like to wait 5-10 days before they plant into that to reduce root burn.
This week we have another good forecast up to Friday. We have been working ground with two tractors, running two corn planters, spraying and planting trees. It looks like another busy week, but we are loving every minute of it.
