Based on the calendar I should probably switch the name of my post this week over to spring but it still feels like winter. We at least go rid of most of the frost this week and we had a couple of days of sunshine.
We were able to get back into the field where we had left of a tiling project back in December. We finished installing a 15 inch tile main. It was good to be back in the dirt again after the long frozen winter.
The majority of our seed has now been delivered but it still may be a while before we start planting. We are going to need some sun and heat to dry things out. We had about 2 inches of rain for the week so we are fairly wet in the fields.
Check here for reports from this winter. Last update: 4/6/2014
