Just Riding Around Looking at Fields

As the 1977 Chevrolet Ad stated:   Now that’s more like it!

Warm (Hot) temperatures and lots of wind have dried the fields to the point a cloud of dust trails the planter

Planting along 4000N

A little farther west on 4000N

Recently planted field

Corn plants are emerging

Normally, 20 to 40 thousand plants per acre

Not all tractors are green and yellow

More and more Red, Blue, and Yellow are appearing

Cooksville or Hooterville, when you see one of these “Get the heck out of the way” as Bill sagely advised!

    Seems maybe you are going from one extreme to a different extreme — wet and cold to dry, hot and dusty. At least you may get more riding in now ;’-).

      Very true! And, the monster winds have subsided, 🙂

    In Blue Mound Township they refer to that (always via pickup truck, not bicycle) as “crop inspection” as in, “Let’s go crop inspecting and make a stop at Caseys….”

      They ‘may’ do that the other way around here. 😉
