This crop is bothering me.
I did a good job planning for it and getting it growing but now the weather has went from not letting it mature to not letting it be harvested.
Farmers have lots of bucks on the line, including me.
It is still cold and damp here and it doesn't look like it will warm up soon.
Farmers have to have all the faith required to plant a seed, watch it grow, nurture it and try to make a living from it. They spend that living in their community which is why I call them the backbone of this country. That is because we are the backbone of this economy.
Without food and shelter, we all know we wouldn't be here long. Farmers provide both, food and shelter.
Our crops are eaten and stored and transformed into many foods. Our crop provides the timber to build our houses.
Today my tree crop will be used to warm my house and it is not October yet.
