Farms in northwest Minnesota viewed from space resemble a patchwork quilt in this 10 September 2009 image. Fields change hue with the season and with the alternating plots of organic wheat, soybeans, corn, alfalfa, flax, or hay. Although lush green fields dominate the image, some crops have already been harvested leaving squares of tan and brown. Photo courtesy of NASA.
