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.
