Neither Terry or I get this rather new practice of farmer’s burning off their farmed ground.
The quality of air is just not there. For at least three weeks.
We see it everywhere…all around us.
We are old-time farmers;Terry and I. Terry still disks the stubble back into the fields; (I do the same thing in my gardens) adding rich nutrients into the earth, creating a better growing environment for earthworms and our crops.
“I don’t know,” his puzzled voice came back to me. “Maybe burning off the fields helps it dry faster. I just don’t know.”
I don’t know either.
