Thanks and Giving: Piles

Day 2 of giving thanks...for sand, snow and rocks, oh my!

It's Day 2 of Thanks and Giving...a month-long look at what we can be thankful for in agriculture and the rural Midwest. Today, piles of stuff.

I'd like to argue that piles are the true farm kid life.

No boxes. Just piles. Large, messy, never-ending, amazing piles.


Snow and sand, even rocks. Perhaps a little more dangerous, but no less fun. Piles.
