July 4th at the Farm
At the farm was a field of wheat. When the wind would blow the wheat bends, folds and waves with the breeze. "Amber waves of grain", come directly to mind as the sea of grain rolls with the wind. It was a majestic sight.
The wheat has since been harvested. Another sight is watching the grain flow from the combine (the machine that harvests the wheat). It is a representation of all the accumulated work to get the final product.
The wheat field not only produces grain, but also straw. A product used as bedding for animals or for all the hayrides that make the go around, among other uses.
The wheat field is now the pumpkin field. In 3-4 short months the field will be covered in green and orange, just ripe for the picking.
