Lessons from the south

I continue to hear concerns at Town Hall meetings regarding the climate change legislation currently in front of the US House. It sounds like it might have come together today. Can't wait to hear what will be the impact on agriculture.

Some soybeans are still being planted in the southern parts of the state. We saw some soybeans going in near Creston and heard of more around Bedford.

It has been a battle to get hay put up. Many are still working on getting the first crop in. Even with the hot temperatures, the humidity has limited drying. And rains have come and set back drying progress every few days.

If you are on the road in southern Iowa and can come up with a reason to stop and eat near Mt. Ayr you have several choices. Peggy Sue's sure has great homemade potato chips and hash browns.
