With spring in full gear, excitement rolls on the countryside. Farmers across the state of Minnesota are mist one of my favorite seasons of the year, planting season! For some, this time of the year will last many months: starting with sugar beets a month ago and ending with edible beans (a.k.a. the glorious Bush’s Baked Beans) by the end of May. For farmers other than crop farmers, the duration of the season may depend on more than just the weather. As calving season is in gear, many farmers need to tend to both the planting and the cattle. With my own personal celebration of this time of the year, enjoy the collage of my pictures below of various crops in bloom.
Here’s a friendly reminder by Fastline to watch out for farmers this time of the year. Remember, these farmers you impatiently wait for feed your family and often have families of their own to come home to. Drive with patience and caution for the safety of all!
