This is the view out my front door. That's my mailbox in front of a corn field. My husband can hit a golf ball all the way into those trees on the other side of the corn! He loves golf and football, so now I do too!
I grew up "barnin tobacco" and even have an old tobacco barn behind my house that used gas to cure the leaves. Tobacco Barns are 2 stories high and we used to hang the tobacco sticks on the rafters in them. They aren't used anymore and you can see them all over the country side falling down, a sign of times gone by. At the end of the road I live on at the stop sign are several acres of tobacco. When I was 8 years old I drove the tractor that pulled the tobacco harvester and when I got older I sat on the harvester and tied the tobacco on sticks. Now the whole process is more automated. They have machines that go through the fields to "crop" the leaves and they are cured in bulk barns. There are also plenty of corn fields, tobacco fields, cotton fields, soybean fields and produce such as squash, cucumbers, sweet potatoes and peanuts in this area.
