Last week I took a drive down Farm Life School Road. This is actually where I came out but I forgot to take a picture as I was going in. The road is dirt and maybe a mile or two long. I entered off of one paved road and exited here onto another paved road.

I had never been on this road before and didn't know what to expect but was very curious about the "farm life school".

There was nothing but farm land in every direction I looked.

The road curved here right in front of this irrigation system. There was a truck parked in the middle of the road in another spot but I didn't see anyone around.

I've seen a lot of ornamental windmills in people's yard but I was surprised to see the real thing as there aren't many around here.

It was shipped in all the way from the Netherlands. Just kidding! Looks like Texas to me.

After seeing all the onion crates I decided this must be more of the Bland Farm fields.
I saw a few farm buildings and one mobile home but I didn't see anything that looked like a school. Makes me curious how the road got it's name.

This tractor was stirring up dust way in the distance.

Oh, :) you drove in to TX??

Maybe it's a school of hard clods?
Maybe it's a Votech. school. You know... were the farmers get free farm hands that are called students of Agriculture :)
Whatev, it is fun to see rural Georgia.

I was surprised to see how flat the land is there and not many trees as well. It is very different where I live - all hills, trees and rocks!

Susan said...

Wow, you really did move to south Georgia! Lots of wide open spaces, I guess you are officially a flat-lander now? Great pictures!

Dick said...

It looks like the Netherlands, flat land and a mill, hahaha.
Dutch mills are not like that!!!!!!!
I like the pictures and the wideness of your country.

A lot of old roads have names that are a mystery. Thanks for taking us along this one.

I would be curious also, Dot, as to the name of that road. Maybe at one time, years ago, there was a school down that road.

I loved seeing the huge hog in the previous post... We have alot of wildlife critters up here --but can't say I've seen any pigs!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Interesting. That's my kind of road. I like the name of the road. I like to observe names of roads. We saw one a while back named "Moonshine Mountain Road". :)

It looks like a good school to me... all labs and no classrooms.

Malyss said...

A school without pupils?.. at least, there was someone in the tractor!..I like your picture with the empty long road in the middle of nowhere..It's an invitation to adventure!

I love to travel down old farm roads, especially dirt ones, as you never know what wonderful surprises you might find.

Judy said...

I love some of the names you see for roads. Thanks for the tour, I sure enjoyed it.

Rose said...

You should have called me to go with you;) I would have loved driving through here.

Vagabonde said...

We love to take side roads instead of the highways. Maybe there used to be a on-the-job training in the fields for aspiring your farmers?

I like these kinds of roads, and that first picture looks like a water color painting.

Hi Dot,

Thought I had left a comment here before but I guess not- tho I did read this before. I enjoyed seeing these farm pictures. You know me -I love all country scenes!


BTW-thanks for stopping by my place. I commented on your comment there, too! :)

Maybe there was a school there before? Wow, farm land as far as the eye can see! Nice photos with the puffy clouds.

I sure hope that road will always be there, to feed us. with the restrictions our government puts on American farming and business you just never know.

Oh it does not look like Istanbul:) Typically not I used to live. Even though I do love living the "real" contrast of Istanbul, I would like to swap my daily life on this area, but only one-day:)

Those ornamental windmills are very interestingly sweet.

Beautiful land down in south Georgia.

Dot,

Those dirt roads look kind of weird - no red mud. lol

Definitely South Georgia - the farm land is beautiful.

Tina Leigh said...

I love it round here...it is beautiful!

Great tour! I love photo/narrative tours! Maybe "way back in the day" there was a school there.
