Kay…I always find fascinating stuff on your blog. Or maybe I am the only one who has an interest in this stuff? Beyond the aesthetics of this photo, I wonder what people see? The documentation of the old cross-checkerboard type cultivation of a corn field…the open pollinated corn breeds…and where is the rain mentioned in the caption…or maybe it has just rained?
James,I'm glad you loved this photo as much as I did. (I think it just rained.) Perhaps, ya-think they maybe had some corn varieties that were drought-tolerant that mother nature had provided them?
We truly enjoy the info you provide.
