My crop widowhood begins today :) Colin and Dad got back at the corn that has waited all winter out in the field. They have been chomping at the bit for a while now, but there has been too much snow in the field. The corn really holds snow. Soon they will start cropping and then we won't be seeing Daddy until it gets dark.
It was fairly nice today so Ella and I walked out across the soybean field to see what Grandpa and Daddy were doing. Bad idea. There isn't as much "residue" left on the field as it looks. It's mostly mud. But only the top two inches. You sink down two inches and then hit frozen, slippy ice. Ella was covered in mud up to her pull-ups :) We had a short visit with Daddy while Grandpa was emptying the combine. Then we walked back to the house on the driveway, which was a little less muddy -not by much! I sure hope we have a nice spring this year. Last few years have been cold and wet and then suddenly hot and humid. Not nice cool/warm spring days like we used to get.
