Weeds in Wheat

Colorful poppies are beautiful along-side the roadway, but are weeds to the wheat rancher who tries to keep his crop clear of other plants. I enjoy the way the poppies are enhanced by the golden grains. Wheat harvest has started --- a busy time of year for wheat ranchers. The piles of grain near the river are growing taller as they await transportation by barge to ports down the river and the Pacific Ocean. From there, it feeds the world!

  1. Emery grew up on a wheat farm in Kansas, and always loves seeing pictures of wheat growing.
    He doesn't miss all the hard work of farming though !
