The Boots on the Ground Tour moved east of Hallock, Minnesota to the Theresia Gillie farm. As of Thursday, Gillie had planted all of her spring wheat and about half of the soybeans. It has been a battle to get to this point. “We thought we were going to get an early spring and April showed up with a lot of adverse weather followed by a big waiting game.” Conditions are tougher in western Kittson County, but “for my farm, I’m very pleased with what we’ve been able to get in.” (Gillie finished planting over the weekend). The full interview with Gillie can be found on the RRFN YouTube channel.
