Saugatuck fresh country air this time of year

Here in the Saugatuck Michigan area we can’t forget that we are in farm country, or at least surrounded by farm country.  As such, this time of year it is not at all uncommon to smell the fresh “country air” of farmers fertilizing their fields with their livestock’s natural fertilizer before the planting season begins in earnest.  Today with the warmer and slightly humid weather, the country air smell around the Saugatuck Michigan area was quite evident.  It’s funny to coming from a farm as a child to experience how some of the city folk from larger cities react when they come to the Saugatuck area and wonder what that “county air” smell is all about.
