Spring Planting and Rain!

Today it has been raining and everything is still water logged from our rain on Monday. Luckily, we are almost done with the corn planting and the plants are already coming up in most fields. It is a sight to see everything green up in the spring!

Here are some pictures taken this evening from our backyard. The fields are definitely water logged around our house!

The sun finally popped out right at sunset. It has been cloudy all day, so it was nice to see a little sun!

Corn Planting Started!

We had a beautiful day today and were able to start the corn planting. It was a relief to get started. They are calling for more rain tomorrow with several chances in the days to come. . . so that may halt our progress. Hope the weathermen and women are wrong!
