I feel bad for the farmers, who not only had one of the worst droughts in 50 years but now the flooding and ponding of fields.
When you consider just how wet it's been this year, we probably are fortunate the crops are as good as they are.
Stress — Everyone has it, but how do you deal with it?
There are some things you just can't get out of your system, journalism and farming may be two of them.
One of the good things about the daily rain showers we've been getting for the past month and a half is the media's response.
Drought. Floods. Tornadoes. Rain. I have a feeling unless some drastic things happen in the weather patterns, farmers across the country better buckle up for a rough ride.
As my job shadower and I traveled around Wayne County on Thursday, I felt kind of bad to even be writing about the wetness ... again.
These pictures say it all as to how wet the fields are at this point. (But I’m going to stay positive though and assume it will change.)
It seems like this year, the weather is just fighting against most farmers.
We can complain about the weather here but it's almost guaranteed, someone has got it worse somewhere else.
Have you talked to a farmer in the Farm and Dairy reading area? Oh, how I pity you! I’m not going to lie, they are getting kind of crabby and it shows. They are just waiting for the day when it’s dry enough to get into those fields. Mention planting and they get a look...
