Alrighty Then......

Crops are pretty fried already, but the next 5 days or more of 100 degree temps ought to finish them off!  This is just f....UNREASONABLE!

Clouds and rumbles to the north.  Radar shows rain heading NE.  :(

On the bright side, the sun shines above the clouds!  hehe

Spraying Time!

I love to watch the planes fly overhead as they spray.  They get so close to buildings and wires sometimes that it scares me!  I missed the best shots today, darnit!

:'( Hard Times

Gosh, with all that rain this spring, we have had 1/4" all summer!  Some of the corn is just falling over.  I asked Lynn if we had a wind storm I didn't know about, and he said that it's just brittle and dead.  Huge spots of beans are turning a gross light bluish-green and dying.  Some of the areas didn't even get planted as the spring was so wet right into summer.  Lynn tried planting some really late beans (I mean, REALLY LATE) into the muddy spots.  It hasn't worked well.  I thought LAST YEAR'S drought was bad!  Sheesh...

Perhaps tomorrow I'll get photos of the crops.
