We planted 30 acres of non-irrigated double crop beans June 9.  Not counting the 2 small areas the neighboring irrigator swings across the fence line, this is the only bean plant I have found in the whole field.  The photo was taken about 6 weeks after planting  The field looks like the day it was planted.  Virtually no rain, no weeds, the straw is almost the same color it was then.

Sorry to see your crop failure.  I remember my Dad saying "  farmers take a bigger gamble than all of Las Vegas".  He died in 1973,  So the times have not changed.

That looks familiar. You sure it wasn't a picture of my ground? :-)
