A glorious late winter morning.

Almost done planting
Just about everything is in flower, tassel has begun to emerge in the corn and the early watermelon are already bigger than a softball.
Lots and lots of weed control to do but between the craftsman rototiller and the ol' Cub cultivating tractor I'm staying a pace ahead. Was tilling besides the cucumbers when I had the delightful realization that I would not be fighting tall weeds to pick my cukes this year. Last year I had to spend so much time fixing automobiles and equipment it was a real mess. Still some bad nutsedge which will cut into production but at least I won't be shaking Johnson grass seed out of my hair.
Gotta head out soon, sure hope it's cooled down a bit. So very glad the ditch has remained full after GPID did some repairs earlier in the week (during our water days unfortunately) I'm just about caught up again.
If everything keeps clicking along at this pace we should be ready to open for sales to the public in about 2 weeks. Our 29th year!
A wonderful summer evening to you each and all.

Busy Spring 2016
Next week I will be planting 3 kinds of cucumbers and summer squash and beginning soil prep for the later fields of corn.
Rock on with your bad self! :)

Here's a great article any of my farming friends might find interesting: "They tell me not to get angry. But if I am honest, sometimes I do. "
