This is the irrigation canal across the road from us that supplies the cotton crop next to it. It's looking pretty good.
And then this is the cotton crop behind us that is not irrigated. This year it costs $100 just in seed to plant 100 acres and, with no rain, if it's not irrigated, there is little yield. And we can only guess that cotton prices are going to skyrocket. Hay is like gold around here...hard to find..
This is looking out across my front yard. Just across from our brown grass is the road, then the canal and then the irrigated crops.
Well, it does provide a nice swimmin' hole for the dogs. It's pretty deep out in the middle.
Sarah's fitting in real good with the "crew"..you can see she's the first one headed back to the house! Maybe someday she'll feel comfortable enough to jump in the canal with everyone else.
