We've had warmer weather in the past week which has slowly melted off the snow. Spring is starting to come to north Idaho. We're even hearing robins.
Right now the wheat field is a soggy boggy mess.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing. I think. I mean, everything around us is a soggy boggy mess, including the winter wheat fields of commercial farmers.
Winter wheat, if you remember, is planted in the fall, goes dormant over the winter, and then re-grows in the spring for harvest in the summer (July or August). Our trouble is, since we've never grown wheat before, we don't know if we planted in an area that's too level and we drowned the wheat, or if it will spring back and grow once things warm up.
I'll keep you posted.
