Rain, Rain, Rain

There has been a lot of rain coming down this spring and not a lot of acres getting planted. Heavy and frequent rains have soaked many fields. We have managed to get about 2/3 of the crop in, but we will preventive plant some acres as well. If we can get in the field at all this week, we will be trying to seed soybeans, but it has been slow-going. Today, the planter got stuck 4 times just trying to seed 40 acres. Here is Chad about a week ago trying to get into a field:

The tracks have been helpful, but it is so very wet out there. We will not be able to plant a good portion of the corn we were hoping to get in because it has gotten so late in the season now. The corn that has been planted is just starting to come out of the ground now after being planted weeks ago. The cool temperatures have not been favorable. We are, however, thankful for what we have gotten in and will look ahead to what will hopefully be a good growing season!
