No, This Is Not One Of Our Crops

This grows wild in our pasture.

Despite Harland’s best attempts to kill it all off every year, some of it comes back. Hemp (marywanna) was a crop farmers were encouraged to grow during WWII to replace hemp supplies previously obtained from Japan. It was used to make military uniforms, canvas and rope back then. The US government even put out a film called Hemp for Victory.  Today it is illegal to grow hemp as a crop of course, but it still pops up here and there in pastures and fields.

And as a hair adornment for me on the day we worked the cattle.
