The Interior Plains
Transcript of The Interior Plains
If I could choose between living in an urban city or in these Interior Plains, I would desire to live in the Plains. It's a beautiful, lively, open-ended, and spectacular region!"
The Plains have fairly flat lands with low hills. This land is best known for farming and planting crops. "I plant oats, barley, wheat, sugar beets, canola, flax, mustard, potatoes and corn. During the harvest season, I get lots of buyers who yearn for freshly harvested crops! The money I make is used for my family and me to buy goods and materials." Says farmer Ben, living in Saskatchewan. As the plains stretch towards the east, they become into different elevations of land.

The flat lands, are perfect for farming. Tall grass, and rich soil create a perfect environment for crops to grow on.
The Interior Plains can be an unforgiving place. With brutal winters, fickle springs and searing hot summers. "Every few years or so, unexpectedly, we get droughts, my crops are always but to a potential threat." Says farmer Dave. Living in the Interior Plains ever since childhood, Dave knows more than everything about the Plains. Winters are very cold, but short. The summers are long, and hot.
The Winters are cold, harsh, but short.
All crops are 'sleeping' as the harvest season (Fall) just finished. The plants await the snow.
Dry, hot and long summers thirst the crops as the grow through droughts, sometimes least amount of rain.
