Wheat plot tour

The 2018 wheat crop has had it challenges to say the least. Much of the planting was late because it was too wet to get into the fields last fall. Then, that was the last measurable moisture the crop had until April. A mid-April hard freeze has also impacted some of the fields while the drought and cold spring has left the plants short and behind in development. Wheat is hardy though, and if favorable weather happens, the crop may still be close to average come harvest.

Marsh Musings

Not THAT Donald - Donald Duck has vacated the premises! As we watch the processes of the great migration, this is the time when ducks leave our Marsh. It is too hot in Kansas for them to be comfortable. To be clear- not ALL ducks are gone. Several species nest and raise their young here. We will see Mallard and Blue-winged teal mostly. There may be some Northern Shovelers that have babies here. Probably the most visible and prolific waterfowl breeders are the Canadian geese. There are a lot of land and pond owners that erect goose tubs and nesting sites ...
