Rusty Tractor


 
A hidden tractor in the overgrown field is my last post from the old Calverton farm. The steering wheel, seat and exhaust pipe are all that are visible. The weeds are almost as tall as the corn that once grew in this fertile soil.


Yesterday I photographed the ribbon cutting for a community garden. At the ceremony, I learned that Suffolk County is the largest agricultural county in the state of New York. How much long I wonder ?

I can barely see it--and it is kind of sad.

Fascinating. As a Brit, remind me how far Suffolk County is from NYC.
