Photo Hunt: Plastic
I seem to have a theme going here today. These are metal and plastic containers of chemicals — fertilizers, insecticides and miscellaneous farming chemicals. When we first moved in, they were spread over a much larger area. Now they are stacked neatly (?), next to an old refrigerator and roller contraption. Just beyond you can see an old Model T. They are on the neighbors property, although they appear to be in our yard.
In my world view, this is just plain irresponsible. The refrigerator needs to have the door removed, and then be taken to the dump. The roller contraption and old car are too valuable to let rot in the severe weather. They should be taken to a museum somewhere so nerds like me can ooh and aah! And those chemicals should have been responsibly stored and removed when they were done using them. There is a shed with a lock on the door, currently being used, right on the other side of this photo. Just on the other side of that is a field. Even though the farmer has tried to level it out, there remains a large depression that fills with water every Spring. Guess where the migrating birds hang out?
All of those things mentioned above will probably happen mysterioiusly someday. Still working out the logistics and researching disposal of the chemicals in a responsible and annonymous manner. :) And luckily for anyone who stops by, my computer crashed right in the middle of typing this, so you were saved from one of my rants!
