Weather permitting a lot of mornings I will walk down our lane to the gravel road that takes you to town in one direction or north to more country roads. We live about a quarter of a mile from the road so the gravel dust is not a big issue unless I am walking. We have have had almost six inches of rain since Friday so today I knew dust would not be a concern while I walked. Yesterday we had a rain and wind storm. Our corn crop shows a bit of wind damage. Most likely the damage will not be too large, as far as our crop yields are concerned, but never less it is not a pretty sight. Along the lane is some of the most extensive damage. Yesterday this corn was standing tall and straight.
This view is from the road. The beans are a bit flat in spots but should come back once the sun hits them.
A neighbor is spraying their corn crop. This time of year planes and helicopters can be seen spraying for insects and disease.
I walk to this small building that was once part of a farmstead. Some times I will walk a bit more but if time, heat, or laziness are an issue this is the usual goal.
