Fun fact: crops are rotated annually, so here is the exact same field I showed you last year - but it was being plowed for wheat and this year it has corn (harvested in September).
Another reason we went out there was really for my heart. My grandfather (recently turned 90, drives a tractor and gets his hands in the dirt whenever he can) was just diagnosed with macular degeneration, which means he might not be able to see for much longer. I felt compelled to get out there and spend time with him sooner rather than later.
He's allowed to drive country roads, so we went out to the fields to check the status of the wheat, and here he is - doing what he loves - pulling wheat berries to see if they're ready and looking out over his land.
See you soon.
