That’s funny. Just got back from New Jersey and there are corn fields doing great all over the place.
In fact, little farm stands selling corn all over the place doing great, too.
And we had some of that great New Jersey corn on the fourth of July, and MAN does NJ grow some delicious corn!
Trouble is, NJ doesn’t feed the world. We farm and truck. We farm in central Illinois and have farms in Ohio. We truck all over the midwest and parts south and north. The crops look bad everywhere. Usually there are drought areas and good areas. This year, the drought is so very wide spread. Usually, if the farms in Illinois are dry, then the Ohio farms are good. This year, they are both so very dry. The worst fear is they Obama will put on a grain embargo and the prices will drop...thus putting the farmer in a position of not being about to meet even their input costs. This has the potential to be a major disaster.
