Canola In Bloom

 The Canola is blooming.
Canola prefers to bloom in cool weather. 
The longer it stays cool, the more blooms are produced. 
Blossoms produce pods. 
Pods hold canola seeds which yield canola oil. 
Click Here to see mature pods and seeds from last year's harvest. 
Canola fields hum with the activity of bees. 
There are hives of bees tucked in around the area, which produce delicious honey. 
When I was taking photos of canola fields, I noticed this field of what appears to be field peas. From the road they appear to be a variety that I am not familiar with. We raised field peas, harvested as grain not as vegetables, several years ago. 
This field will be fun to watch as I drive by on my way to GriggsDakota.
