Don't know if it's possible, I'm afraid to say it, am I really caught up? Maybe for today anyway. My fellow farmers and I have been planting like mad. Breaking new ground is NOT easy. There is this terrible fescue grass that grows in enormous clumps that I swear weigh as much as I do. Tractors and tillers do not break them up, so the only thing to do is dig them up by hand and physically remove them from the field without removing too much soil. Ugh. But, on a better note, it seems that spring has returned. The weather's a little cooler, but I'm not really getting any of those "April showers". That would be helpful.
