Farming: Getting to Use Big Equipment & Play in the Dirt

Winter wheat looks like a large lawn or golf course
 Spring, it's in the air and the scent of the freshly tilled earth is like no other smell. It's one of my very favorite smells, even as a child I have loved the smell of dirt (so guess I really was destined to be a farmer's wife! =).

In honor of Earth Day (April 22) and because soil is a farmer's most important resource, we  like to think of themselves as the original environmentalists. Here is a YouTube video from a grad student that is so heartfelt and has good points of interest, that I wanted to share the video and the source that I got it from.
