I'm attaching a couple of photos showing the sorry corn crop in our area. This is corn that should be about seven feet tall, already pollinated with good ears showing. Instead, it ranges from knee high to shoulder high, trying to tassle--with little success, and already beginning to dry, as if it's time for harvest.

Another couple of pictures I'm including today are of low-tech solar clothes dryers. These high-flying clotheslines are located a few miles from our place. The idea is that the large pulley near the pole allows the user to hoist the wet clothes up, out of the way, out of the dust, and up where the air will circulate better. This type of line is not uncommon in our area. You can see them every here and there.

Pray for rain, please!
