It's that time of year again. After spending the winter cleaning, repairing, organizing, doing preventive maintenance, ordering seeds, planning, reviewing sales (and costs), and preparing for a new crop season, it is almost time to change gears.

As Henry likes to remind us, "If a farmer is truly blessed, there will still only be about 50-60 seasons to see the results.”

So, how do you prepare for your seasons?

Chores include taking soil samples to decide how much fertilizer to apply to the fields, preventive maintenance on equipment, organizing, cleaning, ordering supplies and budgeting.  Whew!  Some of these chores are similar to other industries, and some are very different.  The colder days make us want to take cover in the shop, and the warmer days encourage us to enjoy the sunshine.

Now that the calendar says that Spring has arrived and we have had more than two days with temperatures in the 70s and 80s, the farm work will transition from upkeep, maintenance, repair, and cost estimating (not to mention taxes) to scouting the land, planning crops, fertilizing, and planting.
