Too cold and miserable to do much outside so I put out a new video of today. Cold enough I need to cover up the few potatoes that are out of the ground already. Ove six inches of rain so far in May which is good but it would be better if we had a chance to get the crop planted. Getting late already.

As much as we needed rain here it is a bit poor timing. Just when we should be in the field planting crops we are now rained out with over 3 inches over the past week. I managed to get out in somewhat muddy conditions and finish applying anhydrous and glad I did it yesterday. Some of the big acreage guys are well into it with many acres seeded but I'm guessing many like me have not started. I know one of these days I will find out what each of those big tanks of anhydrous cost me but right now I don't want to think about it. Or the many gallos of diesel fuel even a small farmer like me has to burn to get the job done. High grain prices help but I wonder if they also help push up the cost of our inputs? Or can we blame it all on Putin's war?
