The weather is keeping us farmers on our toes this spring. Just when I thought sunny skies were here to stay, in blows another storm. Before this current storm is over we will get about an inch of rain, so my field will need about a week to dry out before the tractor can get back in. Sunny days are in our forecast but they are followed with another late week rain event. So just as my field drys out it will get wet again. It is too early to tell if my tomato planting will be delayed but it’s highly possible.
As a farmer no matter how many seasons you’ve experienced or fields you’ve worked you will never be fully in control of your crop plan. Mother nature always has the upper hand, there is no point in fighting to be in charge as that will only cause frustration. Your energy is better spent learning to dance with Mother nature and remember to expect the unexpected.
