Well, it looks like some fruit trees are going to get frosted tonight,
estimates from 25 to 28 degrees for a low. Rats!

Picked all the asparagus, garlic and onions should be able to take it.

Have sorghum, broom corn and Wapsie Valley grinding corn ground ready. Lots of plants ready to transplant when nature cooperates....heck, it's early yet. Bay window in living room is a great greenhouse and seeing green indoors is so peaceful.

Last year was a disaster with washouts and too much rain, too late. Lost broom corn, could not even get into the sorghum field, horses would have been belly deep in mud.
I almost lost a barn boot when walking over to check step too far.

Hope everyone's spring is going well.
God bless,

Getting a new to me spring tooth harrow tomorrow.

Wet and cool here too Mike. We are just using the good dry days when we can. Many Amish farmers got the last of their oats out last week. I hope to get my Wapsie Valley corn planted by the end of the month too. Let us know how the springtooth works out for you.
