Summer is growing season.
"Amarillo Sky" by Jason Aldean
The 2012 season brought a 4 week drought with high temperatures and hot winds. The corn was very stressed and was not growing. Some of our corn has water nearby so we irrigated for the first time in our farm's history. It was a lot of work, but it helped to keep the corn alive and allowed us to harvest a crop from an area that would have had no yield without the water.
