We’ve been busy the last several days.
First was the planting of the new alfalfa field, followed by
(just as soon as he got off the tractor) irrigating that field. ( We are still a tad cold early mornings)
Then came our largest field….now planted to pinto beans! (We water it first, let it dry a bit, then plant)
After which we loaded sweet corn into the planter and headed up to my sweet corn spot.
We finished up the new irrigation of the alfalfa field (the seed is so tiny we plant and then water)
About 9:00 p.m. we started the water on the Middle Field.
We were setting water drenched in an amazing sunset!
The whole sky seemed to flame in vivid yellow and orange!
The bright light flared and drained from the sky
Leaving a tiny afterglow.
No matter where you live, I’m sure you will agree with me how amazing nature is.
