I have to write about last night's hilarious adventures at the barn and I also have some video, but I can't download the video until tonight, so for now, here are two photos of what I would call "wasted space":
They are turf farms that I pass every day on my way to and from work. Rhode Island is a small state to begin with but I think most of the open space is taken up by these turf farms. Every time I drive past, I picture Lucy and I galloping across the fields, grass and dirt being tossed through the air with every stride and her mane whipping back at me.
But no, these fields produce sod that is harvested to re-do athletic fields and suburban back yards. What a waste! ;)
In case you're wondering, the bridge-like contraptions in the photos are what the farmers use to water such a vast area of grass.
