So let’s talk about planting in clay. Our soils need at least 5 days after a rain to drain and dry enough for us to get in them with the tractor. I’m sure you’ve noticed, as we have, that this is our first 3-day stretch of dry weather in what feels like eons. Looking at the forecast ahead (rain, rain, more rain, no 5 day stretches of relative dry) has us crying into our cups. We are worried, dear friends. Worried about the timing of our crops. If you have the ear of Mother Nature, would you mind asking for some sunshine and dry for us? Not forever, just more of a balance.
