Keep Those Cards and Letters Coming

Wisconsin grower gets an early start, check his photo out.

Looks like those in the northern Midwest may be getting a jump on the season. At least that's what Steve and Joan Kelley are saying. The couple, who farms near Fond du Lac, Wis., sent in a photo of March field work.

In their e-mail, the Kelley's note the early start. Says Steve: "Been farming for 30 father before that. Only once can I recall being on the land in March."

The image below is Kelley running his Buhler tractor and doing some spring tillage. Interestingly, Kelley notes that he was "on the land before the seed has been delivered this year." Looks like another year of firsts.

If you've got spring photos you want to share, pass them along. Just send the images to me at [email protected].
