We have been lucky enough to get 300 acres done on some of our lighter better drained land. Were hoping to spray some at the start of this week but too wet now. Hadn't had any precip since mid-late March, whenever that blizzard was, and wasn't much. Everything has been clear of snow since late February except for snow banks and was looking to be drying up nicely. Got an inch of rain Sunday night and now all the creeks and ditches are running and water laying around almost like spring again. Guess that's what happens when you get excess moisture for 15 years! Have one quarter that dries up better that might be able to get some fertilizer on tomorrow. I don't get too excited any more, didn't even pre-buy any fertilizer or anything last fall or this spring. If it stays too wet, F it, take the crop insurance and be better off. Have tried farming enough wet years to know mudding in a crop doesn't pay any bills, at least I won't be out the inputs this year.
It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
