Frost here in Central Ohio yesterday, 4 inches of rain last week with very little field work done. Still need coveralls until noon, soil temps 45 here also. Fueled up and ready in Ohio.

Well here in southern Minnesota my digger is still frozen to the ground INSIDE an old shed. Thinking maybe in the next day or two it might crack loose. The fields are going to take till MAY to get ready. Tilers still finding frost.

It's highly unlikely that we'll turn a wheel an hour south of Chicago until May. We had two inches of rain last week and we'll be lucky to avoid three inches this week. The ground took the water easily but it's starting to pond. The sun looks scarce for the next ten days. We'll sweep a couple bins and grease the planters this week.
