From a distance there was not much growing in the field trash left in last year's corn.
It took close inspection to find that the soybeans were up.
Shorter than the toe of Farmer Fred's boot, but out of the ground.
If little plants had the ability to fear, this field would be scary with its giant corn bones strewn about.
The soybeans seem blissfully unaware as they appear to be waving a hello to one another with their first leaves.
In another field, where the bones belong to barley, it is easier to see the new growth.
Each one carrying the potential to produce hundreds of its kind.
These rows will grow quickly and will need moisture.
The soybeans are growing in GriggsDakota.
