This Father’s Day morning seems to be the calm between the storms. Yesterday’s ferocious storm blew in and out quickly but left behind a trail of damage that cannot be overcome. Over 30% of our winter wheat has been knocked down. The little potato plants that were bent over will straighten up and be fine, but the winter wheat will not recover. While we will still be able to harvest it, the combining job will be difficult and time consuming. Today we hope the severe weather predicted will pass over us. I think we have had enough excitement here for one weekend...You can see a video of our winter wheat dancing in the wind last summer by visiting “Dancing Wheat.”
