This Week in #Plant13 - Canada - April 30, 2013


Seeding and planting across Canada has not got off to a leaping start in 2013.  In the prairies it was snowing as late as yesterday while Ontario growers have been fighting their own version of poor spring planting conditions.

See this weeks US pictures of #plant13

It seems to that kind of year when you can go you better go.  Below is a collection of some pictures posted by Canadian farmers on Twitter the past couple days.  You can see in this picture sample that farmers are recieving their new planters and drills while others are still shoveling the sidewalk.  Some will make you smile while others will just shock you with all the white.
