On Saturday morning I drove up to Wheatfield to pick some blueberries--it is that time of the year again. I was surprised at how awful the corn fields looked. I think I saw one field along the way that looked normal, and it may have looked good only because the part near the road was healthy. Most of the corn was stunted and yellow. There was a lot of standing water in fields and yards. I do not think that Jasper County will be the number one producer of agricultural products for 2015.
Update: Monday morning--we got another half inch of rain. It is a good illustration of the principle that just because some is good, more is not necessarily better.
