Still in the cornfield

There are few things in this world that are non-debatable...God loves us, the sun rises in the east, and things will happen that cause your field work to run behind schedule. Monday morning I thought we would be finished planting corn on Wednesday, giving us enough of a window to begin harvesting our rye by the end of the week.

Ain't gonna happen.

From needed supplies not arriving as early as expected to a couple of mechanical problems, we were not able to begin planting until Tuesday evening. If all goes well today, though, we'll be cleaning and unhitching the planter on Friday morning. That won't give us enough time to start our rye harvest before the weekend, but by Monday we should be ready to go.

You can hear me talk about our corn planting this spring in the latest edition of the Gilmer Dairy Farm MooTube Minute:
