Linking in with Helena & the other snappy folks at :SNAP
This week my foursome is recent activity in the field behind our home. Every year I tried to capture the cycle of the crop that gets planted. The farmer rotates the crop every year; corn; soybean & then winter wheat. We believe we also observe a difference to the wild life that follows the crop rotation. When there is corn we get more raccoons & deer, although there are fewer & fewer deer sightings. For soybean we notice an increase in the number of garter snakes in our yard. When the crop is winter wheat we see more rabbits & mice.
This year the farmer has planted corn. I give you the four stages of spring planting.
Stage One Harrowing:
Stage Two Spraying Roundup:
Stage Three Seeding:
Stage Four Rolling to ensure good seed to ground contact:
I will probably have the four stages of corn growth later in the year
