Corn on Matt's birthday
Today our oldest son Matthew is 33 years old. For most of his life, Garry has been trying to plant corn on Matt's birthday. Today they finally finished planting a field of sunflowers, that they tried to finish yesterday, when we got some rain from a passing thunderstorm. Most of the field was planted early in the week, but then we had a couple of rainy days. They plan to plant another corn field on Monday, unless it is too wet, because there is more rain in the forecast! We have never had such a wet spring in the four years we have been farming here in Ukraine.
The first 260 acres of corn is up and growing, I took a photo on Tuesday when it was poking up out of the wet ground. Today I went out to take some more and you can "row" the corn easily even in the photos.
I am sure that the boys in Manitoba are not ready to plant corn yet, since the weather is still on the cold side. I will find out when I land there on Monday night.
Garry will be staying here in Ukraine until May 30th, but I am heading home for next Saturday's bridal shower and will stay until after the wedding on June 8th (our Micah is getting married.)
