When you look out my classroom window, you might see a couple of different things. Our school is on a farm. You might see corn, soybeans, trees, grass, a combine, a tractor, or other country things.
The first thing I am going to talk about is the corn or soybeans. There is a large field outside the school. My dad actually farms it. This year, there was corn on one side and beans on the other. Next year, there will be beans where the corn was and corn where the beans were. During the winter though, you might think there are no crops. Well you thought wrong. During the winter, My dad plant a cover crop that keeps the ground fertile and enduring nutrients.
The second thing I am going to mention is the trees and grass. In some areas, you can see small forests or a big plot of grass. Although there are plots of grass, there are more fields than grass plots. I like going to schools at McDowell Middle School.
