Damme and surroundings.

A new bike trip faraway of people for COVID 19

But light rain and fog formation prevent me from getting a nice connection with the heavenly colours.
I was able to take this photo with rain clothing and camera protection

This photo was taken in the afternoon, many people do not want to stay at home anymore, but the government is allowed to cycle or walk.
But keep enough distance, I saw that most people respect this, the death toll is rising spectacularly in Belgium from COVID-19. (>7200)

Origin, potato field the farmers are artists with them big engines

The potato (Solanum tuberosum) belongs to the Solanum family (Solanaceae) and originates from the mountains of South America, where it has been an important food source for thousands of years. Around 1570 the potato was brought ashore in Spain. At first the potato was only grown as an ornamental crop and medicinal herb. Not until the 18th century also for consumption.
The potato plant is a biennial crop but is grown as an annual. The leaves, which are slightly hairy and resemble tomato leaves, are sensitive to frost. Potatoes form underground stems. At the end of such an underground stem (a stolon), the tuber, the potato, is formed. Nutritional reserves of the potato plant are stored therein. Depending on the species, the skin varies from smooth to rough and can have all kinds of colour tones. Each tuber has several buds, the so-called 'eyes', from which a new plant with tubers develops in the following year.
