Planting Season Underway

The spring planting season is well underway. Shown above is Ben Hanson doing some custom seeding for Calvin Thompson southwest of Sisseton on Thursday, May 18. Hanson was planting oats. The smoke visible in the background drifted down from Canadian fires. The haze started on Wednesday, and by Thursday it smelled like smoke in the area and air quality was greatly affected. ~ Courier Photo
