  1. You always take superb photos. I like to view them at full size. Holding the shift key down when you click on it, does the trick for me.

  2. I'm back from my blog break ... plenty of rain around here. I guess not quite as much your way but nice to know you are getting some of it.

  3. Yay for rain! We got rained out from planting corn, but that's OK. We're glad to get the rain for the wheat crop, the alfalfa and to green up the pastures.

    1. The clover is baled for hay. The clover hay that we made last year is currently being trucked out to a farmer for his beef cattle.

      Clover is really good as part of a winter crop rotation, say following a wheat crop. The clover adds nitrogen to the soil, so it helps build up the nutrition of the soil.
