    Default Poor farming conditions could lead to higher prices at grocery store

    "After 25 years in the commodities business, Britt said he has never seen a year like this one.

    “It’s almost worse than 1993 in some cases,” he said. “A lot of times you feel like it’s localized. This year it’s nationwide.”

    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Nothing surprising there. Sadly.

    We live in a rural farming area. There is no corn this year, anywhere. The fields were just too wet to plant any this year. It's odd to see all the fields with nothing planted in them, maybe they will get soybeans in. In the 16 years we have lived here I have never seen this.
    I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.

    I read that quite a bit of the corn crop was planted, but the soybean crop will be very low this year. Our part of Iowa was hit hard by snows this winter and then rains this spring. I feel funny even saying that, as the last three years were drought years.
