Yesterday there was heat and sunshine
Overnight there was wind and rain that caused our barley to lay down.
Yesterday the field looked like a downy mattress.
Today it looks a little lumpy.
From perfectly standing barley
The crop is transformed into wet, lodged barley. Although it can happen quickly in GriggsDakota, the problem is actually not too bad. We're hoping that when the sunshine returns, some of the barley will stand again.
So we received some needed moisture for the beans and corn. With modern forecasting, the storm did not take us by surprise and overall things are fine in GriggsDakota.
