I was actually surprised the other day, Dad and I went for a

Country cruise to check out potato fields and they are blossoming like crazy!! Which is great considering many thought the crop was going to be ruined by the mass amounts of rain we got...I suggested we grow rice in our new paddy's while we waited for Noah to load the ark hehe 😜

Some of it is for feeding animals, too. The soy here looks good from the street. Nice and green still. Maybe I'll get out and see if we have beans.

Last year the corn in Ks fried but the sorghum did really well. I have heard some farmers switched to sorghum for this year.

The piece I heard on the radio the other day pointed out that 75% of foods we buy in the grocery store contain some form of corn. But they also said that most of the cost of things like corn flakes are PACKAGING, so the prices on things like that won't go up TOO much. It is the cost of meat that will rise the most.

Out here in the midwest, one of the things they use corn for is that abominable ethanol. (My car is a '96 and won't run on it. I accidently filled up with it once and had to have my fuel pump replaced because ethanol dried up the rubber seals.) In many areas you can't find gas that DOESN'T contain it.

Now the farmers are trying to get the rules changed so they don't have to make and sell so much of it. With the shortage of hay already critical, they (rightly IMO) want to free up more of the corn crop to feed the animal.
