Here at the MW Homestead, we feel a little hemmed in, what with the sea of rapeseed all around. In previous years, the grain crops – or the lack of crop – has not prevented our moving around the property, but this year the dense growth confines us to the yard or to the road. Until harvest, we’re unable to hike around the property.
“I thought of someplace we could go,” said Mike when it was time for yesterday afternoon’s walk. As it happened, I had thought of a similar route. So, we headed down the lane to the draw . . .
and from the draw we climbed a bank to access the neighbor’s field.
Then we hiked around the edge of the fields . . .
. . . until we were back at the road and home by the lane.
