The Mysterious Crop Circle
At the northwest corner of my place, back behind the barn, is a mysterious crop circle. The crop is weeds and it really is a mystery to me why this bare patch of ground exists. The ground is hard here, much closer to plain granite then decomposed granite so the weeds are more sparse here then other locations. But why do the weeds get thicker on the boundary of the circle and then nearly no vegetation at all inside the circle? I have been here for 26 years and so I know that nothing has ever been on this spot--no old buildings, no parked vehicles, no junk. It is about 12 feet long and about 7 feet wide in the middle. I have yet to see the UFO land here.
a view that has no end; no DSL, no cable, cell phones kinda function; dirt roads; plenty of space; no actual gardening, just find the plants that survive the conditions; a few good neighbors; wildlife up close; 25 minutes from the closest town--I would not want to live anywhere else.
