A friend where I used to work had a farmer for a husband. Since my own husband retired from a large manufacturer of heavy equipment (think yellow), he has worked for a farmer, too. My friend and I to talking about what farmers must talk about when around the table at the local coffee shop. Our list was growing, but the one that we got the most amusement from was that they seemed to talk about farmers that couldn't plant straight. I think that might not be an issue anymore since so many use GPS to plant. However, I do think they have to make an adjustment at the ends of the rows. But I wouldn't know for sure as I am not privileged to such secrets. :-) But one thing my friend did bring up. She said that God loves a crooked row as much as a straight row. And a crooked row yields more corn. That is the origin for this piece that I designed a few years ago.
