Here in Northwest Indiana, it’s a wee bit wet out in the fields thanks to frequent and steady rains.  Somehow, thankfully, many of us have managed to get most of our corn in the ground.   A lucky few have been able to plant beans as well.  Not us mind you.  Our corn is all in the ground, but not one bean has made it out of the bag or box.  It’s ok, though.  It’s still early as far as a time table for getting beans planted.  Sunday, we took a little back road trip to see how everyone’s crops were doing.  It’s one of my favorite times of year to see the crops coming up.  It’s a time for hope and promise.

Hope you make it out to the country to see how all of our hard work is growing.  While you are out and about on the country roads and highway, keep an eye out for us.  Farmers are still moving big equipment, and when we get a break in the wet weather we will be out before the sun comes up and headed home way after the sun goes down.  Let’s all work to keep ourselves safe this spring into summer.

    Having lived in Iowa most of my life I got so excited to see my first corn in a field last week.
