Wheat Field Under Palms


You don't think of date palms and wheat fields in the same space but they exist here. Wheat is planted in the winter to be harvested at the end of April...about now. With so little land available for cultivation to have simply a grove of date palms would be wasteful. Once the wheat is harvested, another crop will be planted, possibly the corn of summer.

That makes good economic sense to me and to make use of the land is wise. I like the way the palms look with the wheat at their feet. Makes a nice shot.

Scary to hear about the food price demonstrations in so many countries. It helps to have and eat locally grown food when transportation costs are so high.
