I Dream of Garden

I’ve had a lot of time to (day)dream in the beginning of the week. You say, I spend about 15 hours in a car going back and forth from Normal, IL. In case you don’t know, it is FOREVER away from here. 15 hours to go to a Mitsubishi supplier conference. Best part, I get to take another long drive next week to Lafayette, IN for a Subaru supplier conference. Bleh.

I got to check out a great deal of farms. Lots of them. Unfortunately, not much difference. Soy beans, wheat, corn. Wheat, corn, soy beans, and so on and so forth. Each little town had a silo where I’m sure they brought their harvest to and I’m sure they made pennies on the dollar and needed subsidies to afford to keep their land.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single crop farm, aside from a U-Pick fruit farm, that grows something other than corn, soy beans, or wheat. Welcome to the Midwest.

Anyways, getting on with it, I had a lot of time to think about my garden. It’s hard to describe how giddy I feel when I see little plants popping out of the soil that just weeks ago I sweated over to till by hand.

So, without any more to do, here are a couple more garden pictures.
