Natural Privacy~

You may remember a few weeks ago I posted some photos of the dust storms that we experience for a few weeks after the harvesting.....

I wrote about the cover crop that is planted to save the topsoil from blowing away in the off season.....a cover crop that will eventually be about 7 feet tall and surround us on four sides.....Well, we're a little over half way there.

Each of the fields is a different height at the moment, growth is dependant of course upon when the field was harvested and then planted again with the cover crop. I took this photo with the vehicles in it to show the growth in the field behind us.

We can still see the John Travolta house at the moment, but in a few weeks, we'll only catch glimpses of the roof when the winds bend the crop downwards.

We love this natural privacy brings with it sounds of wind rustling the plants and the scurrying of animals that take shelter from the heat of a Florida summer. We'll see red fox run out of it from time to time along with other critters.

This is just one of the many things we found when we left behind sub-division living - the changing scenery of a farmer's world. Each season we experience a different view of nature from the white flowers of potato plants, to the barren fields just after harvest, to the swaying green of a natural privacy fence.......
