Tour of a Potash Mine
In a short four hours, I had traveled nearly a mile below the earth surface, seen the inside of a mine, walked between massive machines, viewed potash milling procedures, walked above railroad cars, all while looking like a giant marshmallow. It was a great morning.
Planning for drought.
I’ve had enough sledding and hot cocoa! I am ready for spring! My friends in the southern states have already started gardening. I follow their Facebook posts with garden envy, while my garden is still under a blanket of snow (sigh)! In November, my family and I moved from Kansas to Iowa. This year will be a new adventure; I have new soil, a new climate, new zone and new challenges. I can’t wait!
