FOOD OR FUEL

While driving through central Illinois yesterday,
I stopped to watch a corn harvest.

Massive fields of dried corn . . .
 giant green John Deer harvesters . . .
gobbling up rows of stalks,
silage in one truck,
kernels in the other.

It's harvesting time.
Destined for feed or fuel,
or overseas export.

(These are not small farms.)

  2. Somos tantos que tienen que existir este tipo de cosechas, pero sigo prefiriendo las pequeñas granjas...
