IN THE FIELD: A MONTH APART

 

In this part of southeastern Pennsylvania there are small towns and communities surrounded by farms. Interspersed among these farms are more farms. Corn, soybeans and wheat are the primary crops grown here. Most farms also raise various grasses which are grown for hay. Dairy farms are also prevalent. Whole milk and some wonderful cheeses are produced and sold in small co-ops. Organic veggies along with grass fed beef and pork can also be found in these small stores. And the eggs, oh the eggs…yummm!

On the way to and from work I often see folks out working the fields. And yes, they are up before sunrise. Watching the transition from fallow fields of late fall and winter, to lush crops of early spring and summer, for me, is a sight to see. Man and nature working together to the best of their abilities.

The farm in these photos is quite close to where I live. Literally about seven minutes away. I will be visiting from time to time to document the changes through the seasons.

These two photos were taken about one month apart this year. The first was taken on May 1 and the second on June 5.

    How cool is that to see how one month can change the landscape this time of year. Look forward to seeing more!

    What a difference a month makes.

      It sure does…from the grays of winter/early spring to the greens of late spring/early summer it certainly is easy on the eyes!

    What a difference! It looks so lovely and lush now.

      It sure does “green up” around here…especially this year. We’ve had lots of rain and cool temperatures.

    It is always interesting to observe the changes. Without taking photos regularly of the same subject, we might not even notice the major changes.

      Hey Cornell you are exactly right! Some changes are so subtle we wouldn’t notice without documenting them.

    Great idea! Will look forward to the fall/winter versions.

      Without wishing the summer away…I’m looking forward to that time also!
