The corn rows look like stripes -- not for long, though. The corn will grow pretty quickly and we won't see the dirt between the rows.
This corn field belongs to the same farmer who was building a levee, but it's away from the river. I drove by there the other day to look more closely and realized that the farmer has built a levee all the way around a couple of fields close to the river. Either I didn't notice the whole picture when I shot the one in my blog called "Dirt" or he had just begun the dirt moving.
