This place is dotted with farm buildings, gardens electrical transmission lines, windmills, radio towers, train tracks and roads. Carving and cutting this land apart, interrupting row after row of corn.
These gardens are domestic in scale. The food grown here is meant for the family table. Some will be canned. Some will be frozen and some stored in the cellar. But much will be eaten fresh as it comes in from the garden.
