Looks as though the quickgrass (not quicksand) is gradually swallowing it.

Below the clouds there is a field of corn ready to harvest. DYK: Corn is just about the top agricultural crop in terms of edible caloric yield per acre/hectare. Much of that energy, ~95%, is lost converting it to meat. However, if the human population continues to grow, we'll all have to convert to corn and corn byproducts to fill our daily caloric needs, or more likely, the "haves" will eat what they want, the "have nots" will go hungry or starve. And - have a nice day.

I had the impression when traveling through Lancaster Co. that the Amish took great pride in and care of their property. They seem to accept it as a sacred responsibility. Every farm - buildings and fields- were well-maintained and picturesque.

Within an hour of home I can get to about four different Amish communities and they all have differences. One smaller group to the south of here doesn't seem too well kept. None of the ones in this area are commercialized like the Homes County and Lancaster County communities are. But nearly all do have signs out in front of the farm to sell things they produce such as eggs, lumber, furniture, etc.

Amish people moved into our area in the past twenty years. I'm not sure if they came from long established communities about a 100 miles or so SE of here or from another part of the country. Some have moved into farmsteads already here. Some have built new buildings, not really reminiscent of classic farm structures of Ohio or Pennsylvania. They've built some thriving businesses the entire area benefits from having available: stores, sawmills, a bakery, etc.

The Amish in the next county over has grown a lot in the last 20 years. A lot of the new building they build look like pole barns with metal siding, but they build a house in part of it, so the structure may have a house and barn under the same roof. Many of the farms have 2 or 3 houses, multiple generations living on the same property.
