Planting time

Tractor at the horizon (look under the ski lifts)
If you look at the horizon line across the field in a distant blurry image you can see a tractor planting corn.  Looking at the field in the foreground it is obvious that this field has already been planted.
Technology has changed so much over the years. Nowadays GPS units guide the men in the tractors to get perfectly straight lines. I love driving by the fields and watching the crops grow slowly throughout the summer.

Freshly Planted Field
Today in the temperature was in the mid 60's. The perfect temperature to drive with my windows down. But with all the tractors in the fields, I can already tell my spring allergies are going to come on tough. I should know enough by now to plan ahead and start taking allergy medicine as believe bud out. I guess I continually hope that by some miracle I will get over my allergies.

Just a few weeks ago I found out my youngest nephew shares some of my allergies. I have an unusual food allergy. I am allergic to bell peppers;  red, yellow, and green. He took a bite of a supreme pizza and immediately started getting sick. He was down sick for a couple of days with all the same symptoms that I have when I eat bell peppers. At least he knows he's not alone. His mom was able to tell him auntie gets sick just like you do. I still say it is amazing how many chefs don't know how to add flavor to food without bell peppers!

Sorry for my tangent. I guess that's why my friends will say, "squirrel!"
