This week saw a turn to warmer, drier weather. My personal tastes say that’s less comfortable, but it’s a welcome change for the farm. For a while it was too wet in most places to prepare the ground for planting, so I’ve had to delay planting various summer crops such as beans and squash. But the drier conditions this week mean that I’m finally able to plow in the winter rye stubble and work on getting the ground ready for, hopefully, lots of sowing and planting next week. Speaking of which, time to head out and get another plot or two prepared. — Sydney
