Field Report

Most evenings we go for a ride and check out the fields and look for wildlife.

The wheat is starting to turn.

Almost amber waves of grain.

The farmers should be happy with the amount of rain we have received so far this summer.

It was 42F  yesterday morning or 5C eh!  It was brisk.

  2. Definitely a bit cooler than here. We have enjoyed the cooler mornings the last couple of days. I am about to get out and clear a bit more of our roadside hill. Can't wait - - - for it to be done!

  3. Your temps sound like mine. I am loving the cool mornings. I am anxiously awaiting the corn crop harvest. Dying to eat home grown sweet corn.

  4. While we have plenty of farms in our not-to-distant area, we just don't have the sweeping views you do.
    Always a hill or chunk of forest in the way.
    I enjoy your pictures.

  5. Beautiful vistas. It just amazes me that you are fifteen degrees colder than we are at night. In July! :-)

  6. I see that corn must be "knee high by the fourth of July"!

  7. Great photos of the crops. We live in an awesome country!

    I bet the mosquitoes were shivering yesterday.

  8. Looks like your wheat is quite a ways ahead of ours. But so lovely!

  9. Kind of makes me a bit homesick for Illinois. The crops there are pretty far along now, and they have had some perfect weather on the farm. The corn is extremely tall and tassling, wheat is harvested in most places, and they raise soybeans instead of peas. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Morning, love to see the fields. Funny, on the way home from the lake I was snapping pictures of the fields too. Blessings Francine.

  14. Yes, 5 C would catch your attention. We've had a long hot spell.

  17. Wow- that is pretty chilly! We're at 61 this morning, but it's due to all that rain yesterday. Hoping it is out of here today.

  18. I am loving this summer! It is gorgeous here with 60's at night and 70's during the day....it's historically record setting but they could leave it like this all summer for my taste. I can always put on more clothes but I can only take off so many before getting arrested or booed.

  19. Glad to see some flourishing fields! We certainly have had fluctuating weather--from 40s to 90s--LOL! I just hope the farmers come out okay this year. :)

  20. I need to get out and take a photo of my corn fields. I guess I have to be careful not to bother neighbors while walking on their property to get to it. Things are growing on schedule this year except the areas where the hail took things out. The replanted beans.
