Down on the farm

.

Last week's farm pictures from the middle of Israel.
They are snapped through the window of a bus, so it's better if you click a few times and open them to the large version. 
You can see the sharp line dividing dark soil from green plants.
According to the hats, I reckon those are workers from Thailand harvesting whatever crop that is. 


And here a truck with trailer goes along the farm road leaving a trail of dust. 
Israel is in her fifth year of drought. 
Most of our water now comes from desalination.

UPDATE: I just learned that today is World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought!

It looks like, even in drought conditions, that a good deal of work is going on.

Very cool you posted this and did not even know it fit with the day until later!

Drought conditions seem to be every where.
