We Interrupt This Blog For A Farm Report

We interrupt our regular tech/library/baby-related news for an agricultural report.  Heard on the news tonight that it is the 100th Anniversary of Marquis Wheat, an early-maturing hybrid that is pretty much the entire reason that Saskatchewan is known as the bread basket of Canada.  They're doing a bunch of special celebrations at the Experimental Farm in my hometown of Indian Head including planting one plot using 1907 technology. (Oh, here's something I didn't know – the inventor, Charles Saunders, was from London, Ontario.)

    Living in Saskatchewan means that you're aware of what's happening in agriculture, even if it's only by osmosis. Working in rural Saskatchewan brings that home even more. After all, this is a province where “Get any rain lately?” is considered an appropriate greeting.
