Not a lot left in the fields these days … Wheat gone, canola gone, the rest of the corn is disappearing daily as the neighbors work overtime to get it in before the rains start in earnest …

Then on my bike ride yesterday I came across this …

I have no earthly idea, but it’s pretty clearly a crop, not a field of random weeds.

Up close it has a thistle-y kind of look, but not your standard thistle, either.

Anyone?  …  Anyone?
