We have several CRP ( Conservation Reserve Program) fields in our area where the wildflowers take over.
This field is full of Goldenrod…many different Goldenrods…Solidago is it’s real name and there are at least fifteen different varieties in Minnesota.
This is a Corporate Farm field. It wasn’t exactly amber waves of grain this year. The grain harvest is over. The grain was full of smut or rust or something that caused the whole field to look black before it was harvested. Too much rain for grain fields this year…plus they irrigated when it wasn’t raining…you could see the black go out from the little potholes in the fields. The dryland farmers had much better grain fields than the corporate farmer. Yeah for the small farmer!
