Barns in the Fields

In summer the fields on the farms are bursting with crops
 Corn
 Hay in the front - potatoes in the background
 Potatoes in the foreground - and a tractor plowing up old strawberry fields
 Clover - and then more corn in the background
 And hay in front of blooming potato fields.  This area grows tons of potatoes - the most delicious potatoes we've ever eaten
 When the potato fields are in blossom it is an amazing sight.  The purple blossoms mean red potatoes - white blossoms are white potatoes.

 They grow tall and lush, making mounds of potatoes below ground

...JoAnn, you sure live in a gorgeous agricultural area. The barns are lovely, but the fields are a great addition. Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you can do it again.

Thanks for this beautiful and informative post!! How could I not have known that about the color of the potato blossoms -- born and raised on the Idaho border as we were (not the main potato growing part though, in my defense). Beautiful farm landscapes -- every picture is so lovely.

Didn't know you were in a potato growing area.

I think those potato plants are new for me. I can't recall ever seeing a crop like this before. And it's especially interesting because I'm considering growing potatoes.

All of those flowers and potatoes too!!! What an amazing sight to see! Now I have a taste for boiled cottage ham with boiled red skin potatoes and cabbage. Thank you for sharing!
