images from the land of corn & soybeans
I suppose that corn is still good for something. Is it cattle feed, maybe?
This is field corn, or dent corn, which is used for feed, the production of fructose sugar and other uses. Read here:http://waltonfeed.com/self/corn.htmlThere's very little sweet corn grown in Illinois. All the grain elevators you see dotting the landscape store this dent corn, or soybeans.
You just gave me the most wonderful feeling that autumn is really and truly here - and winter is just around the corner. I love the changing of the seasons and your picture shows why. Your blog is beautiful!
