Growing Season

So, the corn is really growing right now (as it should be), all around Iowa. 

Over the weekend, Liv and I traveled to the Des Moines area. As we headed across I-80, we saw a lot of corn crops growing. 

Liv, by the way, loves to say "Grow, corn, grow! Grow!" on occasion, as we're driving along and pass a field of corn. 

At one point, I just had to take a photo.

I absolutely love seeing these seemingly endless, rolling fields of corn as the plants wave in the breeze.

I love seeing the fields of soybeans, too. Liv loves the soybeans, as well. As a matter of fact, while we were on the road, she'd commented that the soybean plants looked like they were actually waving at her. So she said, "Wave, soybeans, wave! Wave!" 

I guess I'll have to get a photo of a soybean field before the growing season is over.

Very cute!

Corn is actually one thing we didn't grow. I love corn, and so do the boys, but I've heard it's tough to keep pests out of it, so I didn't try. Maybe next year though?

How cute! I'm sure the farmers appreciate Livie's cheerleading. :)

Plenty of it around isn't there. The color of the growing crops is my favorite color.

My partners parents live and farm about 100 miles north of Des Moines. They also grow corn and soybeans. I wonder if it looks like this. I have only seen photos of the house and barn.
