Farmers have started the planting season. This is a small field on Pouley Road. If I remember correctly last year it was planted in corn, so this year should be soybeans. We'll visit again when the seedlings come up and watch as the plants grow. The bags of seed are loaded on the back of the pick up and the green buckets pulled behind the tractor are filled with seed. And yes - Illinois topsoil is that black and rich.
Speaking of watching plants growing, there's still no activity on the Iowa Corn Cam. They should be planting the first part of May so check in often. I have to laugh when they get comments that their camera must be broken because the picture never changes. It does change but something on the scale of geological time - SLOW.
