Life on a farm is full of periods of waiting. You have to wait for the milk to be ready to feed the calves. You have to wait for the silage to come out of the silo before you can feed the cows. You have to wait for the ground to get dry enough to plant your seeds, then you have to wait for the rain to come to help the seeds sprout (but not too much rain), then you have to wait for the seeds to grow up, to mature plants- corn or rye or whatever you planted. Then you have to wait for the crop and the fields to be dry enough to harvest. Then you have to wait for the field to be fertilized with manure and then you have to wait for rain to come to put the manure into the ground for the maximum benefit. Then you have to wait for good weather to plant the next crop, and the cycle starts all over again.
Right now, the corn harvest has come to a screeching halt because of all the rain that we have been getting. Once all the rain stops, the corn has to dry down a little bit and the fields have to be dry enough to run the harvester, tractors, and wagons through before any more harvesting can take place. There is nothing to do but wait and enjoy the rainy days with less work and more time for doing other things with family and friends. The busyness of the harvest will come soon enough again.
