Delays in the east…

As usual, farmers are finishing up planting in the central part of Wisconsin while the Eastern half looks to get going. Heavy rains the past week have delayed planting yet another week on the heavy clay grounds. The alfalfa fields have been burned off and corn fields that are not under water seem to be worked up and ready to go. Although it is late in the year, this is a common trend on the shore of Lake Michigan. Colder soil and air temperatures delay any activity in the ground, typically two weeks longer than those west of highway 57. As farmers plant the high ground this week, dry weather looks promising for the next few days.
