Spring Planting 2014, Wrapped Up!

The guys finished planting today. They closed out the season with soybeans.

We're supposed to get some rain tonight and into tomorrow, so it was great to finish out before that came.


Here's little B and Chad planting beans this morning.

Spring is one of the most stressful times of the year, but as always we're thankful to work with such great people who helped get everything in the ground. Here's hoping for a great growing season ahead!

Spring Planting Update

Spring planting is well underway. We are over halfway done, but are facing some challenges ahead as the ground we have yet to plant to corn is pretty saturated and there is rain in the forecast, so we are hoping at best that we miss those showers and can finish up with corn and beans.

Re-seeding winter wheat last Sunday


Little B heading out with Poppa to try to dry out some ground to the east of us.

Getting more seed to the Horsch Anderson yesterday out at the field


Cole's using variable rate technology to apply phosphate in this bean field. More to come on that in a later post.


Some crazy clouds last night at the yard


Somebody else has been busy farming...

Spring Progress...or Lack Thereof :)

We received quite a bit of snow and rain over the last week. It looks like we'll have maybe a couple/few days without moisture and then more rain next week. Fortunately, we have gotten in about 1800 acres of spring wheat, so we are thankful for that progress.
