Last weekends rains dropped over 5″ of rain on the farm and we weren’t looking for that sort of moisture this late in the season. Its tough to even say that out loud when so many others need the moisture. Between the rain and wind the great stand of peas has substanitally fallen. The cnary seed is now tangled from its strong pre-gale force storm stand and the canola has a definate lean to it.
We’re facing more rain this week, but I’ll take the rain when you compare it to the hail parts of Alberta received last night. Lets just get through this crop year. Harvest should be earlier than usual if the heat returns. Bring it on.
