Recently, Lime (see her link in my bloglist) posted gorgeous photos of a Norwegian farm and it got me in the mood to make a trip to see some farm country. Sure enough, this week I had to run some errands in one of Oregon's farming areas....I was excited!!
It has been a tough year for farmers in the PNW. Our winter was very, very wet. Our spring was more like winter and, well, summer just arrived recently. Farmers are very busy right now harvesting some of the crops that are finally ready.
Speaking of busy farmers...on one country road we found the longest stack of straw bales I 've ever seen.
On another road, we found one field where no one was busy. This corn should be much taller by now--I hope next season will be a better one for our farmers and I hope our autumn is dry and warm enough for all the crops to ripen.
Of course, in farm country one sees a lot of animals and I LOVE farm animals:) BTW, I am still working on my hubby to get some goats...
Such a pretty area--orchards, field crops, vineyards, trees, hills, mountain views, animals! I LOVE the countryside! Do you?
Wishing you a blessed Saturday~ Blessings, Aimee
