    That's same as us. Very wet still. We've had s few sunny and warm days but then it's raining right now - even if it's a shower.
    DH tells me it will be a late harvest here and for the first time in years they'll still be going at xmas

    I'm not technically a farmers wife but hubby does contract farm work. We are currently waiting for everything to dry out enough to start cutting hay. He will probably be on 7 days a week starting next week

    7 days a week is tough. Especially after this crappy winter has made me a hermit, DH starts working 7 days right as the weather changes and I'm ready to socialise!
    Although a huge downpour has brought him inside tonight

    It's raining here now too! We desperately need to spray weeds, but lately it's either raining, too windy or DP is at work and I can't do it because I've got DD at home. Might have to pay someone to do it!

    Ours are very ordinary. Too much water on some very mediocre ground. I'm not very optimistic this year at all.

    At least we have something to harvest though.

    DH hasn't sprayed anything this year either. It's been too wet the entire growing season.

    That's what DH and his dad are saying here. At least there will be something unlike last year when they got very low yields

    Alright cropping wives! It's that time of year. Heat, grumpy husbands, absent fathers. And we haven't even started harvest yet.

    Break downs, late night trips into town for parts, DS telling everyone he meets that "Daddy is on the windrower/baler/header", discussions about how exactly Xmas will work since they'll be right in the thick of harvesting, ripped jeans, no clean socks (bad wife!), grain in pockets, late nights, early mornings. That's about all I've got so far!

    Happy to say Ive stopped travelling.
