I guess its not unusual for us to get frost overnight in May and we had it last night. Ice in the cattle trough and cat dish this morning. Lucky I have no crop up to damage yet. There is talk in some areas that emerged canola suffered some damage from frost. It takes time to show.Re-seeding might happen for some.
Got in a good day of seeding wheat here (my first) after getting a couple of hundred  acres of canola planted. We are seeing a little dust behind the air seeder which is something we have not had a lot of in the past wet (mud) years.  That canola in  the dust will need a little rain shower to help it germinate. It might happen on the weekend.
I had a little help  in the field today

While I seeded wheat on canola stubble. Good looking sunset. Should be a nice day tomorrow.


  1. Is that the royal "we," Ralph, or do you have a wife you haven't been telling us about? Who is this Mary of whom you speak? Oh you are a cryptic one, mister. -Kate

    1. Yes, I don't give too much information away. Usually its just me out there but my sister in law helps out when the pressure is on to get the job done. And a fine tractor driver she is. (Trucks too).
