Then came our largest field….now planted to pinto beans! (We water it first, let it dry a bit, then plant)

HOney-and-CreamAfter which we loaded sweet corn into the planter and headed up to my sweet corn spot.

Our-ShadowsWe 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.

Canyon-SunWe were setting water drenched in an amazing sunset!

OrangeThe whole sky seemed to flame in vivid yellow and orange!
