Also, this is the point where I remind you... I am a novice farmer's wife and Kanyon is not responsible for anything I claim to know and tell you on this blog. He wanted me to let you know.
Anyways. Kanyon planted his irrigated fields about a month ago and his dry land about 3 weeks ago. So I came out to see how it looked about a week ago.
(That is wheat that is growing alongside the rows of cotton.)
Kanyon dug up a seed that had just started swelling with moisture and had a growth started for me to see.
Did you notice how rough Kanyon's hands are right now? I told him I'm pretty sure he cut me with one of his callouses grabbing my hand last night...
Please be praying for our farmers right now. The wind and the very high temperatures this week (and lately in general) are very hard on these baby crops. The wind can blow away the top layers of soil, especially if its not wet (Kanyon's had about 40 acres blow out already) and the high heat will make the water that is on the ground evaporate before it can be absorbed. And rain would be really nice too : ) Thank you!
