Flat Land

The winter wheat planted last fall turned green late last week and has just started to grow. Still more cold and snow on the way, but it's really good to see green again. And it wasn't windy today!

This is some of the richest farmland in Indiana, and perhaps about anywhere. This soil formed beneath glacial Lake Maumee, which stretched from here (east side of Fort Wayne, IN) to Buffalo, NY. Just north and west of here it is much more hilly (still flat by most people's standards) and the soil isn't nearly as rich.
