The sun is trying to shine through the morning’s clouds. Our fields just will not support the machines…yet. So far, we are not feeling the pressure to get going… the conditions will not permit, so why fret? But it also feels like when it does get dry and warm enough, there will be MANY jobs to do all at once!
I did get out on the Gator yesterday to do some burning in 3 fields of crop residues that piled up during winter’s flooding. Some locations burned well, some did not ‘take off’ very well. Drier days needed.
The weather forecast predicts rain tonight and Sunday.. but the daytime temperatures are going to rise into the 70s! Warmer days will speed the drying process.
The grass is growing. It is interesting that we have not mowed the yard yet. We generally expect to mow once in March, so when we did not, it indicates a colder, slower start to spring.
Patience is a virtue, and it is especially helpful this week.
