July in Kinistino

The Van Burgsteden's of Kinistino  sent in this picture of the Kernels canola taken this week...  There has been an overabundance of rainfall there so far this year.  Wheat is doing okay but canola is suffering.   Canola is a fighter though and often turns from a poor looking crop to a very good one !

Are the heavy rains over ?

   Sometimes we get signs....   God created the sign of the Rainbow...  

This is a picture of a rainbow that looks like it is coming right onto Rob's ( my fellow Grain Buyer) field.  He is also a farmer at Rossburn, Manitoba.      Maaaaaybe it means there are going to be some good crops this year !

...  The Grain is trying to grow !   Crops that were in early and established a good root system seem fine.  For now they can use a lot of the extra water that keeps coming... later they will have roots established that can reach down deep for support...   the later crops don't need to work hard for water because it is right there...  that doesn't allow for a well developed root structure (if they don't drown in the meantime )   so later if the rain quits they are shallow and can easily dry up...    That seems to be the same as people in their Spiritual walk... It is so good to have something deep to fall back on. 
   More real crop pictures coming soon !
