Volunteer corn stalks amongst the ground cover
I love the routes around my home, especially the Harshman Road loop. Here we have a field that was in corn last year (2011), and still had some viable kernels in 2012, even when another crop was planted. I am not certain of what the ground cover is (perhaps barley?).
The closest volunteer
I learn so much from the annual cycle of agriculture, but the most important lesson is that food comes from the ground, not from the grocery store.
