This is a Minnesota potato field.
It used to be a Tall Grass Prairie...undisturbed as far back as I can recall...possibly longer than 70 years.
Now it is an irrigated field, planted with Russet potatoes bound to be long French fries.
There is a potato plant/French fry factory just South of town when the wind is from the South and you are shopping in town it smells like French fries.
FYI we didn't have Sea Gulls in town either but they love freeloading at the potato plant and flying over town to sit on tall light poles and poop.
