*You’re gonna notice at the end of this post that I’m clearly days of the week challenged and maybe a little bit looking forward to my family coming home this weekend.
You don’t need me to tell you that there’s been a lack of water out here in the Mid-West. Yup, even in Northern Michigan it’s been uncharacteristically dry, though thank goodness not near as bad as our precious corn belt states.
The lack of rainfall was good and bad for our first cutting hay. It was great in terms of getting it cut, baled and off the fields without the threat of rain to mess it up but the tons per acre was pretty low due to…you guessed it…the lack of water.
And as per the fun in farming rules of engagement…second cutting has so far been…well…thin.
As for our corn and soy beans? Well, there’s still some time as we plant a late harvest kind of seed.
The good news is I heard we’re in for a three day rain starting today – you never know they may be right but in the meantime…
We’ll keep pouring the water to the horse paddocks here on the place.
And of course the flowers too!
Happy Weekend Friends and Family!
