Out on Riverside Drive, about half a mile from Oakville Road, this is what you see: Three great big stacks of stuff covered with tarps to protect them from the winter rain.
I went by there again on the bike the other day (Dec. 15, actually) and stopped to take a closer look:
I assume that what’s stored there, under all those tarps, are countless bales of straw taken from mid-valley grass-seed fields after the harvest last summer, probably waiting to be exported.
The truth is I don’t know anything about this, including exactly what is stored there or why, or by whom, or how long before the stuff gets shipped somewhere so it finds a use.
I was just impressed with the size of those long stacks, three of them, enough to stop and look around for a few minutes on a windy December afternoon, and take some pictures too.
And if someone wants to fill me in, please do so in the space for comments below. I’d be grateful for a chance to learn more. (hh)
