Photographer's Note

Spring planting always has its trouble spots where the winter's snow lingers on longer than in the open fields.This is an area along the edge of a forest where the field dips down a slope.In the winter, the storms blow high drifts of snow into this corner which means a much longer thaw period.
In an effort to speed up the process, I run the harrow through the snow to bring up some dark earth in the mix.Since anything dark absorbs the sun's heat the snow will melt faster than if left undisturbed.The white snow without the dirt simply relects the sun's heat.
We are having some rain today which will also speed up the process.And the rain also gives me a little rest from planting :-)
You can see that the harrow discs have lost all of the rust which you saw in the FIRST photo of this crop planting theme .
