|Week 3...and 3 kids!!|
Joe is a little nervous about this picture, as the corn is kind of rolled up, but that's thanks to the lovely 90 degree temperatures we have had and the seven drops of rain we have had this week.
Anna, as you can see, is helping me by holding the yard stick, as the corn is now way too tall for a ruler (yea!). It measured approximately 20.75 inches (we were uber-scientific, as I didn't zoom in on the measurement...so we checked the words on the yard stick. Thanks, Dodge Trucks!).
|20.75 inches! And Anna's Crocs!|
In all seriousness, however, Joe explains this application like this, and I quote,
|The sprayer, working its magic...right behind my house!|
Can you tell he was a teacher...and a good one at that??
Anyway, life on the farm rolls on...just as the dust rolls off of the road. Thankfully, today, also, Dad and Joe have taken care of that mess (literally) by rigging up a water truck to spray down the road. There's a graduation party going on about a half a mile away, so our traffic is up, but since the road has been watered down, they have slowed down. Take that, townies!

What a day we have had...add in a long run, trip to the grocery store and Wal-Mart and friends for dinner, and I'll say it's been productive!
