I have often teased about the experiences some of us had in the beet field. For some of us (Judy and me) it was short lived - shorter for me than Judy. For others (Dwight and Elizabeth) there were days or weeks spent doing that tedious work. Tucked in a journal Dad had started at one time, copies of which are in the works, there was this card regarding the sugar beet crop. All of a sudden (ok, so I am a slow learner) the time spent in the fields took on a whole new meaning. I thought you might enjoy the science behind the field work.
