After a week of mostly mild weather and melting snow we are back to cold and freezing today. Nothing unusual for March in Sask. At least I had my supply of granular fertilizer delivered this week at an almost ideal time. Leaving it too late means that roads and ground are soft from spring thaw and can cause difficulties getting around with heavy truck loads.
It sure doesn't take long to run a pile of cash through that ten inch auger. It took the rest of the day to clean out the auger. Fertilizer is extremely bad for rusting metal and that auger is really hard to clean out. Grain inspectors have zero tolerance for fertilizer granules in grain samples so it is a necessary task..
