It's scary Val. Even more scary that it's so widespread. It's been such a strange year, we really didn't have a winter, then an early, hot spring and now this. (maybe the mayans were onto something after all lol) I looked up some stats for us, our county has over 350,000 acres of tillable land, with them saying 75%+ loss on all of those soybeans & field corn. Food costs are going to skyrocket. I'm cringing at the thought of what beef prices will be. Dan & I have talked about getting some meat chickens, stocking up on the feed now before it goes higher and doing our own butchering.
Here's a few pictures, some local, some from other areas in my state.
This is a 200 acre protected wetlands about 30 miles from here celerybog.jpg
