Scouting. Sunflower fields are up and blooming by now. It's time to start looking around, and maybe trying to find a new area that won't get the traffic of the more popular spots. I have, of course, done nothing, although my sources tell me the crop looks good this year. Most likely I will rely on hearsay, rumor, and innuendo to find an Opening Day spot, and, if that goes as well as it did last year, be a little disappointed. The real scouting and real hunting begins after that as we start looking for cut cornfields.
