The first part of April found us in a cycle of weather that did not allow us to get in the field. It went from nice and sunny to rain followed by cold. The week before Easter cleared up enough that we could get a few days of spraying in before we got 1.1 inches of rain Wednesday evening into Thursday keeping us out of the field again. By Friday after Easter, it has dried enough to begin field work and we get roughly 450 acres planted by sat evening followed by more rain Sunday. While we waited to go to the field, we worked on getting our fall strip-till bar project repaired and painted.
This week corn and soybean harvest 2023 started at Gingerich Farms.
