March 23rd Update

23 Mar , 2008  

Climate change! Snow at Easter! We’ve had it before, but it’s always a mess. Too mild and it goes away very wet. Looking at the long range forecast I can’t help but feel that there will be little activity drilling peas this week. That will be two weeks lost to the weather, which is not […]

This morning a quick trip around 750 acres of early peas gave me the chance to assess how the crops were faring in this cold weather.

All the peas need to be drilled in a […]
