Its Official

Just read that our area has been declared a disaster zone due to the poor harvest conditions that left a lot of crop in the field for winter. I don't know if it will make much difference long tern as the days of government handouts seem to have ended and we are usually on our own to sink or swim. What grain is left in the field is , or will be, poor quality and not worth much. Adding the cost of drying that low value grain is hard to take.
I'll be ok but I can imagine those with big operating loans coming due might be a little stressed.
Its winter. The crop that is left I'll forget about til spring. It will be dry to harvest by then. What the deer don't eat anyway .

  1. I guess it's good for the deer. I reckon you could still get a little good from that grain if you'd take up eating venison. ;-)
