Planting Time Is Near

Farmers will be planting their potatoes soon. Not long from now, this field will be full of potato blossoms. 

The rows, rows, rows will be seeded as those who live in the Valley drive around the fields, eyeing them with a little bit of love and a little bit of hate. Up here, we all love our mashed potatoes, but many of us know what it's like to pick them by hand or work on a harvester. Money's good, but the work's back-breaking or limb-losing (this has happened on harvesters before).

This landscape will change so much in its color and vibrance throughout the year. Brown may be the dominant color now, but not for long. :) Summer's about to get all up in this field's face!
