Stock up!

With all the rain, flooding and general bad weather the Country has had, food prices are going to spike up. The winter wheat report is not good and with all the rain it is not going to get any better. Around here farmers are having a tough go. They have had to fight rain and cool temps., corn that has been planted is about 3 inches high but a lot of it may not survive all the rain. On the good side the forecastĀ is calling for higher temps next week so that will help. If you are able, I would suggest that you plant your own garden. We have many things ready to plant if the weather would clear, it is really upsetting that we can not plant as the ground has standing water. If you are unable to have a garden please stock up now while prices are still low, i would get anything that has to do with corn, which is of corse everything!

Yesterday after I got home from work my Wife, Son and I worked up a small garden plot next to the barn and put in 3 rows of peas, we will plant more rows in a few weeks so that they won’t all be ready at the same time. I can not wait for those first peas! There is nothing better!! It is sunny and warm today but we are just being lazy today. I hope all you mothers have had a Great Mothers Day!!
