Farmer Jeremy finished his last round with the grain drill in the early afternoon amid a few sparse droplets of rain.
Then Farmer Ian finished going over the freshly seeded field with the cultipacker, the final step in the planting process.
Now that the planting is finished, we want it to rain. According to weather.com, there's a 45% chance of rain this afternoon. It's been an extremely dry spring so far.
One way or the other, it looks like relief is on the way. The forecast for Sunday and Monday calls for a heavy rainstorm.
