We have hardly had snow at all this winter. Which is incredibly weird for our area. Last year we had so much there was flooding everywhere on the spring.
Husband has looked at the 14 day forecast and is depressed. It looks like rain every second or third day which means no seeding. He is not a sit in the house and pass the time kind of man.
For the past six years we have been grain farming organically. Unfortunately, due to many reasons husband has decided to go back conventional farming. This means more work and more cost involved. And this is the main reason why he is so stressed out about seeding. We rented land from a neighbor this year as well so we have more acres to put in.
I really hope the forecast is wrong. We have big input costs to cover that require all our land getting seeded. Even if we grow the bare minimum of bushels, we will do well.
Good thoughts to all farmers out there and all you gardeners as well.
