The February 11 workshop drew over 30 LOCAL farmers and community supporters AND a SURPRISE visitor who drove 6 hours from Lubbock Texas just to join us with a few words of encouragement from Triumph Seeds -- Michelle Harre.
The seed breeders at Triumph say they see good possibilities ahead for our New Mexico sunflower project..........................
DO WE ?? THE NEXT THIRTY DAYS WILL TELL !
Pena Blanca Sunflowers has committed to the 2013 project IF we can get 30 acres committed by March 30!
A word about water: the sunflower crop will require 5 to 7 irrigations between May and August. Most hay growers water every 15 days between mid-April and mid-October ----- check the math....... and consider becoming an OILGROWER.
Blooming sunflowers remind us all to LOOK UP --- (it keeps us from goin' down......)
