Waiting for Planting2011

The Midwest is a unique area of the world to live in. Needless to say, I admire the patience of farmers in this area waiting for the correct soil temperature, the correct moisture in the soil, the ideal weather conditions. I grew up in an area where the temperature oscillates between 55F and 85F so Mother Nature's surprises in this area always amaze me. I am a city import and admire the generations of farmers' patience with the challenges all these conditions present for planting2011.
Tonight, I could not help but reflect on these aspects since the weather conditions it hardly seem possible to be so close to planting. Tornado warnings, wind advisory, blizzard conditions...

Agriculture is definitely a challenging profession, all the science and investment that goes into the production is many times unimaginable for many. I know I learn about agriculture every day.
