Remember when I asked if you cleaned out the seed spreader before we planted the beets?
Well – it seems the beet field has sprouted some corn. Any idea why that is Rufus?
Yeah. I didn’t clean out the seed spreader. It’s kinda pretty looking aint it?
Now of course you can tell I drew the “Corn Stalks” in myself, but I didn’t want you to miss the visual.
We were up north yet again last weekend, and well, when driving up north through Michigan, you pass a lot of crops, chicken (egg) farms and cows (obligatory Moo must be stated here, Moooo).
On one the roads we were traveling down, we passed this crazy looking field. I stared at it a long time. Then it dawned on me, those random tall things sticking out of the short even beet greens were corn stalks. Ooooohhhh – someone messed up and they’re in trouble……
And of course, my camera sat in my purse on the floor. Now I did say I was getting better at taking my camera with me, but I never said I was getting better at recognizing crazy stuff quicker and pulling it out in time to catch a shot.
I would have asked the husband to turn around so I could get a picture of the bizarre beet/corn field, but the saint had just turned the car around and went backwards several miles so I could get a Caramel Frappe at the last McDonalds we were going to see for hours (and yes, it was delicious, thank you).
Clearly, I couldn’t ask him to turn around again!
Going up north is always a long trip, so for me to single handedly add in another hour drive time because of a Frappe AND a crazy farmer’s field I might want to blog about, would have been inexcusable.
So – instead, you have the artists rendition of “Random Corn in a Beet Field”. Enjoy my fine drawing!!
