Report day

Friday, July 8, 2016

Today, we will report our planted acres and planting dates to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and then to our crop insurance agent.  Each field is individually identified and marked on an FSA map.  It is an annual requirement, and typically this is done weeks before this date.  But because of the extended planting season, (and replanting season!), we are just getting this done now.  The local FSA folks are very helpful, and now they accept appointments–sure beats waiting around.  The deadline for this reporting is July 15.   It feels like we’re getting this done just under the wire!

Another weekend is upon us.  We received .12  inches (3mm) of rain about 6 am today.  Hope it dries off so that we can mow the yard this afternoon!
