Working with Grandpa Gene

The kids and Keith went with Grandpa Gene to the fields to help him with the sugar beets.

Measuring two different trials of sugar beets.

Savannah recorded the weights of the beets.

Hammering in a measuring stick to view heights of plants.

Cutting tops off to prepare for weighing.

Taking pictures to record results. 

Weighing the tops and the beets separately. Grandpa Gene was thoughtful enough to share the process of sugar beet trails with us, and we got to see firsthand a little bit of what he does for his job.
