The FBIL's Annotation Korner
The future brother-in-law is back, with another edition of his popular "Annotation Korner." Today's annotation comes from the FBIL's personal experiences as a former citizen of Texas, and answers some questions that the "blog" almost had, but did not quite have, about sorghum. And now, we turn it over to the FBIL, who says, "Grain sorghum, or Milo, is a huge cash crop down in south Texas. I always thought it was just a syrup before I lived in Texas, but down there, they raise it mainly for cattle feed. Once you get out of the Corpus Christi city limits, it's all over the place. During the summer months the Milo fields grow in vibrant shades of red and gold. It's really quite pretty. I tried to find a picture of a beautiful field of Milo swaying in the wind, but the best I could do is this shot of a tractor apparently harvesting a beautiful field of Milo. On a side note, Milo Fields sounds like it could be the name of an Arnold Stang character." Way to bring it back around to Arnold Stang, FBIL!
