Double or nothing: I'm not much of a gambler. On second thought, maybe being a farmer's wife makes me one by association.
It remains to be seen whether our attempts to double-crop milo and sudan will pay off later this summer. Glancing at the field behind our house, it doesn't look like much more than a few stalks of wheat left behind during wheat harvest 2012.
But a closer look reveals some little green milo plants breaking through the wheat stubble residue. During the past couple of weeks, we've had 2.75" of rain, which has given the newly-planted crop a boost and has been a welcome change from last year's severe drought.
Double or nothing? It's not just a bet in Las Vegas.
***An update: I saw a couple of friends/family members post this video to Facebook today and just had to add it to my blog so you'd have to chance to watch it, too. I don't know the Peterson Brothers, but I'm a fan! These Kansas farmers rock ... or rap! Enjoy!
