Well actually tomorrow we will be in Grand Junction for a regional track meet- so spring is here- just don't know if the weather knows it- I hope the sun shines and the wind does not blow!!

This summer sunflowers will be cultivated along Hwy. 491 through such stops along the road as Yellowjacket, Cahone and Dovecreek, just a few miles from the Colorado/ Utah border. The dry land amongst the feed elevators dotting the highway for many years has produced beans, with no need of irrigation, but now the fields are blooming yellow with hopes of profits in products like sunflower oil and even biodiesel.
