My Favourite Time of Year

It’s that time of year, folks. July on the Canadian Prairies. The fields are blooming. The colours are brilliant. It’s my favourite time of year. So of course, I have to share more crop photos. These photos are from recent field tours in southern Alberta and southern Manitoba.

As you’re looking at these photos, I encourage you to remember that this is your food. Our farmers are growing our food. No farmers, no food.

If you have any questions about agriculture please comment below. I love hearing from you.

On another note: I’ve reached a milestone. This is my 200th post on this blog, Rural Route Ramblings. And it’s fitting that my 200th post features photos of some of my favourite things – agriculture, the Canadian Prairies and summer. 

Thank you for reading!

  1. One of the prettiest times in the country. My personal favourite is when flax and canola are blooming in adjacent fields.

  2. thank you for such wonderful pix! I am watching the wheat, barley and canola being harvested in France. Those canola fields in bloom are breath-taking. I enjoy reading what you are up to. Happy July in Canada!
