This is a remarkable time of year in southern Wisconsin. The changing colors of the leaves capture one’s attention, but I also like looking at the crops ready for harvest, especially the soybeans. Wisconsin is ranked 13th in the nation for soybean production, and Rock County (where I live) produces more soy than any other county in the state. I like driving the back-roads through farm country where I can enjoy the patchwork of yellow, gold, and green soybean fields. We have mile after mile of rolling farmland quilted by soybeans and corn.
I’m not a farmer, but I appreciate what they do. To my eye their creation is beautiful.
