Wheat harvest is well underway in the area. Bobby Daniel was out on the combine Sunday afternoon cutting wheat eight miles south of Friona. He estimated that he was cutting 50 bushels an acre. He shrugged and said, “The Lord just gives it to you.” Daniel is a Friona boy that moved away and has come back home. Farmers in the area are watching the weather forecast for any sign of rain and rushing to get the wheat crop harvested. Temperatures into the 100’s are predicted with little or no rain in the foreseeable future.
