The last two springs the sunshine has been abundant. We were able to get done with our spring fertilizing by mid March. But this year the sunshine has been hit and miss. Since January we have had 20 inches of rain and nearly 8 inches in March.
Now every time the sun shines for more than a day we sprint to get everything done that we can in good weather!
We had a brief break in the rain in February. We were able to fertilize our wheat and plant Austrian Winter Peas and turf type fescue during this period.
But then the rain came back and decided to dump another two inches this month.
Currently, we have a stretch of good weather in front of us. We have to get as much done as possible while it lasts. Basically, the sunshine sprint.
Let’s hope the stretch of nice weather lasts for a bit. Things need to waken up, dry out and grow!
