Pioneer Woman mentioned winter wheat on her post today and it reminded me that I took some really cool close up shots of the winter wheat around our neck of the woods a few weeks ago. The detail is really nice. At least I think so. The farmers around here had a bumper crop this year. That is good since our economy seems to be going to hell in a hand basket.
The fields are all harvested and ugly now. But soon soybeans will be sprouting up amongst the old stalks of wheat. I am fascinated with the land and how different items grow. How families are able to make a living by providing food for the population. Call me weird but I like it and I am glad, even though I have to drive 40 miles per day to work and back I am able to see nature and fields of corn, beans and here in Kentucky tobacco.
