Last week our farmer harvested our fields. It’s been an incredibly dry season. As the tractor rolled across the fields dust plumed behind the wheels.
The fields had been planted with oats. Our farmer was not happy with them, but it looked like he got a good quantity of bales.
He was hoping desperately for rain in the next couple of days. Underneath the oats, he had also planted hay. We needed rain or else we were going to lose all of his seeds.
On Wednesday night, just a few hours after the harvest, the skies opened up. We had rain off and on for two days.
Hopefully that means good things for his seeds.
It would be nice to have another harvest yet this year.
What’s the weather been like in your area?
