Weather & Crops

So far, here in Missouri, we are experiencing the 10th wettest June in 129 years.  Honestly, it's not that hard to believe if you live here.  You see, all it does is rain.  All the time.  6 days out of 7.  It's crazy.  That rain can be both a blessing and a burden, if you are a farmer.
 The corn is loving it and is growing quickly.
 The beans are coming up nicely too.
 But...on the other hand, the pecan grove shown here is surrounded by water.
And the river is HIGH.
Every couple of years the river will flood and then the farmland for several miles will get washed out.  I'm hoping this won't be one of those years, but it's looking like it will.
