The latter; raked leftover plant material.
My guess is furrows. Now I need some eyedrops - haha!
Raked plant material. I think.
I have no idea, I'm guessing furrows because it has the color of dirt/sand.
I think they are furrows of something that has well sprouted .. reminds me of lavender fields some how .. in an odd way ?
Hmmm this city raised girl has no idea! But how's the weather up there? Gail
WOW -- this is a tough one.I learned to drive a tractor before a car. As a teenager, raking hay with the tractor was my job for the fields. To ensure that the hay could be caught by the baling machine, I had to drive down each row, on each side to throw the oats back up over the row in a V pattern.Even if that field is raked, there may be furrows underneath. I think it's raked plant material over furrows. Cameron
Furrows or ruts. All farm equipment leaves some kind of furrow--small, large, deep or shallow.
Looks like there is a dusting of snow trying to fill in the furrows. A road trip picture?
Looks like furrows to me. Wow that made my eyes blurry studying that photo. ;)
Good Morning All,Looks like mulched prepared furrows. Like the kind where you would plant strawberry plants.
Looks like raked leftover plant material to me.
Looks like dust covered furrows to me. The hills remind me of the spargel fields in Germany!We broke a record high temp yesterday of 79 degrees! Now that is more like a Deep South December then the freezing stuff we have had lately. Mother Nature is sure strange with one day record lows then the next record highs!Hope your day was wonderful Tina! I know your family must be on Cloud 9 right now!
How about a parking lot, painted with white stripes by an apprentice learning how to make straight lines prior to going out and actually painting lines on roads?
The lines look too close together to be furrows for planting anything. Maybe the true answer is in the header of this post.
I'm guessing furrows but it is hard to tell. It kind of reminds me of those little Japanese rake gardens!
Gee Tina, Now I'm going to bed with this on my mind! I'm sure that I have NO IDEA. Can I phone a friend?Cameron really seems to have some experience with this. I'll go with her answer: raked plant material OVER furrows. (Now of course, I'll give Cameron the credit if she's right!) Jan
Raked leftover plant material. No wait...furrows. Yes, furrows. No. No they're not furrows, it's what I said first; raked stuff. Hold on a sec, hmmmm...no, it's not that, it's what I said the second time, furrows or creases in the dirt. Yeah, that's what they are, little wrinkles. Hold on again....I'm changin my mind; it's what I said in the beginning: raked leftover plant material. And that's final.
No...wait!! It's not raked over stuff! It's little wrinkles, I swear! My mind's made up this time! It's furrows. Okay. I'm done.
Now doggone it!! I'm changin my mind one final time! It's what I said at first: raked over plant stuff. Final answer!
Boy-you guys make it look so easy! I think I'll post the answer now-is that okay?? It is raked over material, probably corn. I had to look, double look and triple look before I could really tell what it was. And to think I saw it in person! You guys are really good!
Gail, We got back late tonight and it seemed all was well, until I went on my back deck, encased in ice. It is melting now. They cancelled school so the Jimster did not miss any school. Skeeter, I sure do miss that warm weather down there!
Interesting, Tina. Looking out my window at our fields, I would say the white strips are snow, and the grayer part is where the plant residue is.
A complete opposite huh Rose? Stay warm☺.
Interesting - wonder what that material was.. I would have guessed furrows. Maybe frosty furrows...
My guess is that they're frosty furrows. But only because we've had such cold and frosty weather lately. :)
Looks kind of like the fields here after the peanut picker passes over. The darker lines would be peanut hay.I get peanut hay from the field every fall for a little extra mulch where there isn't enough pine straw to go around.Nell Jean
JGH, They do like frosty furrows, but I think it is corn? Christine, Frosty furrows are a good guess. Do stay warm. Those were awesome pictures of the frost you posted.Nell Jean, I would never have guessed peanut hay to be dark. The light lines here are actually the chaff from probably corn. I bet peanut hay would be great for the garden.
