Proverbs
1. He that goes to see his wheat in May comes weeping away.
2. March winds and showers bring forth May flowers.
3. March will search you, April will try you, May will tell you, if ye'll live or die.
4. An April flood carries away the frog and his brood.
5. In July some reap rye. In August jf one will not the other must.
6. Dry August and warm
Don't harvest no harm.
