Another Reason I Like Gene Logsdon

As I take off for book tour with my corn maybe/maybe not all planted, I treasure this quote from page 17 of Gene Logsdon‘s Small-Scale Grain Raising:

The point is that when you are a small-scale grain raiser, what’s your hurry?  It took me a while to learn that.  Unlike the commercial corn grower looking to get a couple thousand acres planted before May 10, I have at most an acre or two to plant.  I’ve known of corn planted on June 16 that still made 100 bushels per acre.  So take it easy.  Spring is  nice time of the year.  Go pick some wildflowers.  Or hunt for morel mushrooms.

Or go on book tour.
