earth of a different color

i finished the floor of the chicken coop today... but i neglected to take a picture of it. so, check back tomorrow for the updated images.
i know how much we all love pictures, so here are some images from the Black Dirt Region, also known as Pine Island, NY.

i was in the area on saturday for lunch- at the warwick valley winery- and couldn't resist a drive around the farms of the area.
it took all of my might (and the restraint of a safety belt) to not run out into the fields and wiggle my toes in that rich, black, amazing soil.
for years, the main crop here has been onions. recent changes in taste and economy has expanded the harvest to various other crops, such as lettuce and radishes.
