We've anxiously been waiting to see some green...
In the corn rows, that is!
This field was planted on Saturday, May 14th..
The rain began on Monday evening, May 16th, and continued all week, off and on, until we had received an overly generous amount of almost six inches. We were concerned about the corn seed possibly rotting in the ground before it came up.
Two days ago, in that same field, we began to see this...
It's very faint, but if you look closely, you can see those beautiful green rows of tiny corn stalks emerging from the soil! That's what we want to see!
We're not out of the woods yet... Some fields look better than others, and a few more days of the hot humid weather that we've had now will give us a much better indication of the condition of the other fields.
We are so happy to be seeing green, and considering all of the weather issues that we've been hearing about from around the country, we have so much to be thankful for.
Thank you God, for green !
