Notebooks for your pocket: National Crop Edition Field Notes

This article was originally on a blog post platform and may be missing photos, graphics or links. See About archive blog posts.

Everybody needs a pocket notebook. Give your thumbs a much-needed rest and write. With a pencil. With a fountain pen. Fill the pages of Field Notes’ spring notebooks with your scribblings and musings. The new crop, in fact, features farm crops. Order the limited-edition Spring 2012: National Crop Edition, a custom-boxed set of six notebooks “paying tribute to America’s top six crops.” Those would be corn, soybeans, hay, wheat, cotton and sorghum.

Outside: a cover for each crop. Inside: tan graph paper. Plus, (this is beginning to sound like a late-night infomercial) you get a reference poster and a 3-inch Crop Edition patch for your overalls. Overalls?

National Crop Edition box set, $23.95.
