NOVEMBER ON THE FARM
Fall did make an appearance on November 3 by covering our fields in a white blanket of frost. This is one of the earliest frosts that I can remember but was very short lived. Within an hour of sunrise the frost was gone. It stayed on the fields for such a short time that most of the grass wasn’t burned and is still continuing to grow slightly. A good friend of ours that raises about 400 acres of hay told me he still has about 100 acres to bale for the last time this season; normally he is done by Veterans Day. As I start this newsletter, it’s the middle of November and the high today is expected to be around 80 degrees. I can’t tell you how troubled we are by the longer, warmer, summers and the warmer than normal winters. How to farm with a changing climate is going to become a major focal point for all farms going forward.
