Yep, it’s official, spring is really here and busy season is back, starting with seeding pulses (peas, lentils and chick peas).

We’ve been spoiled with a lull between calving season and the start of seeding, but the past few days have been fast and furious to get as much seed in the ground as efficiently as possible.

Of course, some of this happens, too, just to keep everyone busy …

There’s also a lot of driving and shuffling equipment from one place to another.

The fields with pulses planted in them are also being packed so that rocks are less likely to get in the combine header during harvest.

Once the pulses are in, it will be time for spring wheat (and hopefully more rain).
