04 Jun Laura: That spring it rained…a lot!
Park, Kansas—Northwest Kansas has been included in the rainy pattern that has been prevalent this spring. As a result, many, including us, still have fall crop to get in the ground. Time will tell how that all shakes out. But, things are green. I mean green-green, and it is beautiful. That’s one way I’m trying to keep a positive outlook because I remember a time, in the not so distant past, when the faucet in the sky turned off with not a drop to spare.
Since the rain has been so far reaching, we’ve been given a little extra time at home. Anticipation is riding high, but the extra days have been put to good use. The crew has been able to get everything prepped and even a few extras. The same has been true on the home front. Heaven knows this mama needs all the time she can get! The children have enjoyed a few extra days with friends and long days of outdoor play, well, when it hasn’t been raining.
Conditions are ripe for a favorable crop down south. Equipment is loaded, trips will be made, and we look forward to wheels turning just as soon as we can get into the field!
