Desperately Dry

In an effort to help our crops to hang on until the much hoped and prayed for rain, David sprayed the fields with fish fertilizer. Everything was looking so parched, and we hoped that a little boost of nutrients would help them to hang on just a little bit longer.

The sunflowers, drooping pathetically in the heat.

Our popcorn plot. It doesn't look like we'll be getting much of anything from it.

If you squint hard you'll see the amaranth.
Lesson learned; don't plant little test plots along the tree line. When the weather gets dry, the trees will suck up every bit of moisture. That leaves your test plot looking like it went through a toaster.
