OMG that looks sooooo boring!!! It's like looking into the pit of oblivion, there is no end in sight



pretty cool, thanks to all those farmers and workers who toil away so I can make triple stack PB&J's on multigrain bread

12 days of this, every one over 100 degrees out there. Every time I pulled that white truck out of the field, I was taking $7500 worth of grain to market. When the grain was sold, it did not pay for the fertilizer, fuel, and chemicals to raise and harvest this crop. Each of those green combines cost almost $200,000. It took 2 days to cut this field. but then, it was a mile long and almost a mile wide.

Its a go big or go home business.

Every time you go to the store and pick up a loaf of bread, now you know that there was a farmer somewhere that produced the wheat that made the flour that made the bread.

Farming is like flying an airplane, hours and hours of painful boredom, interrupted by moments of sheer terror.

Forgive my friend with the sharp tongue. If when we have a hicup in the supply chain, he can write the wonderbread man for something to put in his empty stomach. Thanks to the farmers, to the checkers who make our food easier to obtain than anytime in world history. We really have it better than we deserve. It will probably end.

He was just makin a joke. No harm no foul. It is really amazing how many people think that the food is made in the back of the store. Dont kill animals, go buy your meat at the store where no animals were hurt.
