What happened!  Halfway done with the beans and I've hardly put anything on here this spring!  The weather has been pretty cool and cruddy, so when we get a good day, it's fly like heck!  Tomorrow there's 70% chance of rain, so Lynn is hard at it.  Corn's all in, of course, as that goes in first.  I started a garden complete with some vegetables and a couple melon plants.  Of course, we had frost 2 nights after that.  Only lost 1 tomato, although they don't look very good, and the melons and some red salvia got hit.  Corn was fine as it can take a little frost.

Rollin' Again!

Well, it's time again.  My elbow, back, and feet already hurt and I haven't even done anything yet!  Kelly's been spreading anhydrous and Lynn has been disking.  Bob Tigges is busy hauling the anhydrous and we've got another fellow hauling corn.  Always plenty to do in the spring!  I've started some seedlings and am putting a REAL garden in this year.  Seed potatoes are ready to go in the ground, possibly tomorrow.  Asked Lynn to drag the disk through the ground before he unhooks it.  He said possibly tonight.  Gotta get some grass seed in before the rain which is expected in a couple of days--or sooner!

Pretty dusty. Not much for moisture through the winter.  Veeerrrryyyy cold winter!

Pretty mallards flew as soon as the shutter clicked!
