One thing I learned when I married the farmer twenty-two years ago is that for the farmer the weather is never right. It is either not wet enough or too wet, not warm enough or too hot. When it comes up to hay-time we need good damp days to help the grass grow, then a few days with a good breeze (but warm) to dry it nicely for cutting. And after it is lying in the field, hot sun to bake it to perfection. The same, more or less, goes for silaging.
Luckily we are not arable, but if we were I am sure the weather would be even more important.
But of course we never get what we desire weather-wise - and he usually ends up saying 'we have to take what comes' (true).
Our gardens have been parched as there has been no rain for a while and we have had a week or so of warm sun. However, this weekend it has been cloudy, cool and damp. This morning it is actually raining that very fine rain. Not much in measurement but at least enough to encourage the plants to take it in. Already the vegetable garden is looking receptive. But the farmer has just come in and says we could do with a thoroughly wet day rather than it just 'damping' as it is doing.
As I say - the weather is never right for a farmer.
