This Joint Is Jumpin'!
This "joint" is jumping. Well, the 2015 wheat crop is jointing anyway.
The joint is located where Randy's finger is pointing in the photo below.
My Farmer says he'd like to order 3 inches of rain, slowly and gently falling over 3 days. If only it worked like that! We have the potential of thunderstorms and hail today.
Kansas Agricultural Statistics reports that the winter wheat crop in Kansas is rated 44 percent fair, with 35 rated good. Both extremes of the crop -- the "very poor" and the "excellent" - make up 4 percent each, and 13 percent is rated poor.
The report also indicates that wheat jointing was at 15 percent at the end of last week, ahead of 5 percent last year, but behind the 18 percent average.
I guess this is one of those times when it's good to be average?
