    But still a lot of food. Between the jap millet, buckwheat, smartweed, barnyard grass & weeds we're not hurting for food this year. Don't have any corn, which is king for sure, but we have so much acreage that sat idle and produced natural food, I'm confident we'll be in good shape.

    Did ya'll stay so wet, that you couldn't get planted?

    I know that parts of MO were a miss this spring and early summer.

    knees,

    There is a lot of debate with the State and Federal agencies in our area about "Hot Foods".

    The public hunters continue to pressure the agency to plant as much corn as possible. The feeling is that corn is the only crop that will mitigate the disturbance and pressure applied to public areas.

    Let us know what your situation and experience is.

    Thanks, Wanderer

    We got one round of corn planted that got flooded out. After that, it never stopped raining until August.

    Yes it was Kev!

    Here's a video we shot with my partner's drone of one of the fields. That's a 40 ac jap millet patch.
