Groundhog - Farmer 1-0



 
The hunt is on
 
 
There are 2 holes
 
 
Plastic melts, so killing them is not as easy
 
 
as you can see, they eat quite a bit of beans

Severe Thunderstorms

Both Rien's and Olga & Stephen's flights are cancelled
this is due to severe Thunder Storms in Chicago


That same system dropped lots os rain in Cedar Falls



This is not a river, it is a field



Lots of runoff


This is a field too, not a lake


Stephen and Olga's garden is in a good place
I've seen gardens that are a lot wetter

Crop Tour around Stout

A few beef animals are around

The corn is growing in the humidity

80 mm of rain in a couple of days is a bit much

It happens more often, so there are "water ways" everywhere
grass strips where water can run off


i wasn't sure what these strips were



This is a fertile area
