Knee High by....

What a gorgeous green field!

Yep, despite a drought, the Kansas corn is already knee high...

...of course the beautiful green field can only be attributed to irrigation rigs.

Wheat harvest is in full swing here with just another week or so to go.
The yields are bad but at least there is something in most of the fields to harvest. The custom wheat crews are moving through at a pretty good clip.

Believe it or not though this field was planted to wheat that never came up. For months DR and I have watched the soil dry up and blow away. Today I could see the blowing dirt two miles away. It's a pretty sad sight.

Overall the farmers are doing pretty well though.

Now, if we could only find a market for yucca plants we'd have ourselves a Kansas Gold Mine!


  1. In North Dakota it's flooding and I wish we could be sharing some of the water with Kansas! Our corn isn't knee high from too much water. A farmers market for yucca plants would be quite a sight to see!

  2. I've been praying for you folks in ND and all your water. I sure hope things settle down for you soon.

  3. Can't believe i haven't found you before! All the girls are here!!!

    same on me!

    Well now that i HAVE found you, GREAT PICS and i can't wait for more!

    Lot's of greetings from Indiana


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
