Normally, each summer and fall you'll find strawberries, raspberries, and pumpkins growing on Scott Thompson's Wisconsin farm. Not this year, though.
Seems that when the pandemic forced everything to start shutting down in March, no one really anticipated how long it would go on. But, Thompson says, as it became evident we were all in this for the long haul, he and his wife came up with a plan to give people a safe, socially distanced way to get outside and enjoy themselves: They worked sunflowers into their rotation, planting more than 2 million "blooms of sunshine," spread out in 15 fields over 22 acres so visitors would have plenty of room to stroll around without being on top of each other. His flower fest has met with great success as people from all over the country are coming to visit.
