Potatoes are one of East Gwillimbury's major crops, rotated with corn, wheat, soybeans, lettuce, cabbage and others. I originally stopped to take photos of the field (see below) but as the sun set the sky grew very beautiful. ;-)
This was to be the original photo (it wasn't going to be a Sky Watch).
Yes, it's a bit dark but the plants were growing so quickly I was afraid by the next time I drove by the rows would be covered with foliage. We've had a good amount of rain this year and everything is growing quickly and well.
But I had to drive back the next day anyway to get a decent shot of the blossoms. LOL Aren't they lovely? Ha! Would you believe they are from the same plant as the lowly potato?
