This is a roadside scene - taken from a moving vehicle while leaving Wichita. Most of Kansas is a flat state, full of agriculture. The main crop is wheat, but there are others, too. Along the way, we passed various fields of: sunflowers, soybeans, maize, cotton, alfalfa, wheat, and more. We saw cattle pastures, and nice ranch homes. Fields are divided by fencing and tree rows. When seen from the air - Kansas resembles a patchwork quilt.

Way to go! Great photo of Kansas, the Sunflower State. We lived in Wichita when I was a little girl, in a trailer park somewhere. It was winter time which is all I remember about it. Still, I'm really enjoying all of your posts.

It's a bread basket, a wonderful place to work hard and enjoy the feeling of a job well done. Ah, the good old farm life.

Ever wonder why most of us moved off the family farm?

Yes, years ago when we flew over Kansas in the small plane, it did look like a wonderful patchwork quilt...loved it. :)
