Spying on your farm

June 14, 2012

Uncle Sam is spying on your farm from overhead. According to the Soil and Water Conservation Society, federal conservation officials are using aerial photography in several states, including Iowa, to make sure farmers are complying with conservation rules. The image of drones flying over Pakistan comes to mind, and it's not a thought that's sitting well with some folks in the country.

I took a tour of our pasture yesterday and found a big patch of pretty thistles behind the pond, below. We need to get those killed. I wonder if the weed police are flying over our farm, too?
