The Long Days

Lingering evening light almost due north on Interstate 5

In December the field day ends at 4:00 pm. But in June it is hardly ever dark. I had a cloudy day in the field a couple of days ago, but noted that 10:45 the sky to the north was still lit with light as I headed back to home. The long days make getting field done a lot work easier.

The long days we have make a big difference for farming as well. Even though the soil temperatures take awhile to warm up in northwest Washington, the long days make up for the difference.
