A subtle golden haze settled toward sunset last night as I was driving across Helena Road. Big bales of straw dotted a wheat field that is already green with sprouted grain. Wisps of clouds, fair weather signals, floated over the eastern side of the county.
The wheat harvest is pretty much finished. Farmers are bringing in the straw. The corn is tall. Beans are getting vines. We are in August and quickly tilting toward autumn.
