SPRING! According to the calendar, it’s only 6 days away. Because there’s so much to do to prepare for planting, Dad gets pretty anxious when it comes to spring. A planting window can be very short, so you have to be ready to go when the conditions are right, or you miss the boat. Even before we grew much sweet corn, we never went anywhere over spring break because Dad couldn’t be away from the farm. He just has too much going on in his brain to relax!
To help you all picture what life is like for Dad during this busy time of year, we thought it’d be a great time to ask him some questions we commonly get at the beginning of the season:
What do you do all winter long?
I plan for next year. There’s a lot to do–from getting all the equipment and trucks ready to ordering supplies, attending conferences, and making any changes we need to make to get better. I’m always trying to think of ways we can improve any part of the process.
