Well, we had two or three really warm days last week and then it was back to winter! The first half of April is one of the top five coldest Aprils on record. This week looks like about 10 degree below normal temperatures also. It doesn't get you in the mood to plant corn when you have to have on stocking hats and cover hauls. Maybe people will be able to start planting this weekend or next week? There was a lot of waterway work done and anhydrous applied last week. I think guys are pretty much ready to plant once it finally breaks.
We are using the new Precision Planting Smart Firmers this year. The monitor will display the soil temperature, soil moisture, clean furrow percentage, organic matter, and other metrics. It will be interesting to see what we learn from using them.
Peyton's baseball tournament was canceled this weekend. Hopefully both of the boys get to play their games this weekend.
Have a good week!
