Harvest Time

After an exceptionally wet summer, things have settled down and been almost perfect for the farmers this fall. With dry weather and temps in the low to mid 70's for the past 3-4 weeks a lot of the crops have been harvested. Some beans, which were planted late because of the wet weather, have not turned yet, but will soon. The corn crop is average as far as yeild but beans are doing better for our area.
Quit a difference from last year when it stayed wet up until things froze up. You have to appreciate the risk our american farmers take. They are gamblers in a way, because they never know what Ol Mother Nature is going to dish out to them. X.


  1. We've been just the opposite. After an exceptionally dry summer, we've had tons of rain, hail, and even tornadoes.

  2. Farming is the same all over I think. We seem to have been lucky this year here in Scotland and our farmers have had a bumper harvest. So too in the garden here at the house with our fruit trees laden with both apples and pears.
