When Farmers Go, They Really Go

When I was a kid, I had a grandmother who prided herself on her ability to do a lot of work in a short period of time. She put it like this: “When Grandma goes, she really goes.”

I’m reminded of that line this spring. The region has a narrow planting window, and farmers and others involved in agriculture are pushing hard to plant as much as they can as fast as they can. The sooner crops such as what and corn are planted, the greater the odds of a good harvest.

It’s good to see how much planting progress has been made in the past few weeks. Another two weeks of favorable weather would allow even more.
