Just like every other year, #plant17 was a rushed effort to get the seed in the ground whenever an opportune moment presented itself. Cold weather and rainy days caused farmers this year to pace in their offices or drive around from field to field checking soil temps and moisture hoping they could make progress some way, some how. From what I’ve gathered people were in a similar situation all over the state – at least we didn’t get snow like our friends out West. So this year getting pictures was not easy, everybody in a hurry moving from field to field quickly, doing a trial runs here and there. But I chased down tractors when the sky took on the look of a beautiful backdrop and avoided the days filled with ghastly wind. Which really didn’t give me a lot to work with, but here they are my favorite captures from #plant17.
