Start of spring brings snow, lots of snow

While it may officially be spring we were greeted today with a heavy blanket of snow here in Central Illinois. Just doesn't seem right to have snow today when last year there was corn planted at this time. On the positive note, we at least go enough snow to add to our ground moister.

In the shop: We are still working on getting the sprayer plumbing finished up. It shouldn't take too much time to have that done, then go over the planter. We will be taking delivery of a small portion of our seed on Friday. As of now the weatherman is predicting it to be 54 degrees that day, so at least we wont be dealing with snow getting the seed unloaded.

In the office: We are looking at plans to concrete and finish off a shop in our machine shed this summer. Looking at our options and our long term goals when preparing for this. I'm really looking forward to this, as it is not much fun working on equipment on cold gravel. We are also looking at plans to build a office for the farm inside the shop, or possible putting up a separate building.

Here are is a picture of today's snow

Thanks for reading!
