A typical Canola crop in Canada

This is a pictoral essay of the 2003 crop on my land here in northern Alberta. The crop was Canola; an oil crop. At the left in the first pic you can see the "bush" where I harvest my Diamond Willow sticks. That bush extends to the Peace River, about 5 miles north. Big game comes out of there to feed in my field day and night. The actual farming activity is done by my friend Gilles Plantinga who has a very large farm nearby.

And for those who really need to know the "meat of the matter" this crop was sold and my 20% share amounted to $5,175.00. Canola is a favorite here because of our short summers; like oats, it matures early.

The field is 130 acres in size. (52.6 ha) The rest of my 320 acres is virgin bush, a.k.a. "moose pasture."

Property tax on the land for 2003 was C$248
