My grandson plays FarmTown and Farmville on the internet, and he loves plowing, planting, and harvesting his crops. When he came to visit me in the country, I told him I’d take him to a real farm where there is real plowing, planting, and harvesting. We pulled up to this watermelon patch where farmers were picking the fruit and we got permission to take their picture. We even bought a luscious melon that was sweet and juicy and ripe from the field, no artificial means of rushing the crop here, just Mother Nature’s slow and easy way of seeing the crop to full maturity. What a lovely day we had visiting the farmlands and meeting the farmers. I’d like to dedicate this photo to the hard working people who produce our food and keep life on Planet Earth thriving.
