Indiana is corn central. My little seven acre spread grows wildflowers, weeds, wildlife, trees, more weeds, grass, the flowers I try to put in to make the place look more manicured, lightening bugs, and a lot more weeds. We have two garden areas we are starting to work on, but it’s not easy. We don’t have farm equipment, we have garden equipment, and it makes the work harder and longer. Farm equipment is very expensive, so for now, garden equipment it is.
All around us though, are farms. Corn and soy beans are the two main crops, but this year we’ve noticed more wheat fields popping up. Corn and soy bean prices are flat, so I suppose the farmers are branching out. Immediately adjacent to our property on one side is a corn field. It has to be GMO corn, because the corn fields of my childhood couldn’t hold a candle to these guys. The stalks are about ten feet high, there’s barely any room between them and they are so glossy and green they look like plastic.
Last night my daughter and I walked over to the next door field and took some pictures. I didn’t have either of my good cameras, so these are cell phone photos. Some of them are pretty good quality, some of them not as much. I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed my untouched cell phone pix. I’ll have to take the camera out next time!
Have a great day, and please, be kind to someone. Please. 🙂
