Ready to go to the field...

We are very close to being 100% ready to go to the fields when the weather permits. Tom and David are putting the finishing touches on our new bulk seed system and they will set the starter fertilizer tank on the trailer later this week.

We just experienced two minutes of marble-sized hail and the forecast is calling for light snow later this evening, but we are still thinking spring. Recent storms brought 0.8" of rain, but the fields are drying out nicely. The latest soil temperature maps show that the soil temperature at 4" is around 45 degrees. Ideally, we would like that to be 50 or above, but now that we are in the month of April we will head to the fields to plant corn as soon as they dry up enough.
