This is from our friend, Bill, in Marathon, Iowa, who sent the Spring Update currently on our Homepage.
The blooms EXPLODED and trees became green, when we turned from snow to 80 degree temps in 1 week.
Still wet in Northwest Iowa, some tillage with minimal corn planting in cold earth. Central Iowa did not have any rain and it was common for farmers to plant 1100 acres in 3 1/2 days.
Corn stalks still standing awaiting the new beans to be planted. Most are waiting as showers and storm expected this week.
Last year extremely warm weather was seen in March with fruit trees blooming, the weather reverted to freezing temps, thus very little production of any fruit.
