With the official arrival of summer begins the accompanying money outlay and field work. We had bought many bags of milo, nearly worth its weight in precious metal, and planted on June 7th.
We got some rain on June 20, 21, and 22. On the 23, the day before Saint John’s Day, the traditional “rain day”, (interesting reading on the internet for anyone who’s curious)we got a very good, night-long rain. Here are the brave seedlings on the 24th, and then again on the 28th. Note the very healthy Johnson Grass (see post from last summer for information).
We are caring for three fields this year, and they are off to a very nice start, I think.
