Hi from Ks twister survivor. A good shot of milo. I went all 8 years to a one room country school. And yes, I did walk 2.5 miles to school. I remember walking through the milo and sourgham, flusing quail and pheasant and sucking on a sourgham stock.

Thanks for the memories.

Yes! You're exactly right, Tim! It is primarily a cattle feed. We always keep some at Harvest (usually Oct/Nov, in our area) to grind for the calves that we wean. It is quite yummy to human taste buds, as well! We have boiled the seeds and eaten as a whole grain cereal. I have also seen it sold as a flour in natural food stores. Personally, I think it is one of the more beautiful agricultural crops. On our treeless plains, as your wonderful photo shows, it provides lovely Fall color.

A great capture, Tim, with wonderful color! Your milo looks MUCH better than any up here, where we have been in need of moisture. That beautiful sky looks hopeful for more rain! 10!

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
