This will be my final article for Indiana AgriNews. It has been an honor and a privilege to share my farm story with you, and I thank you for all the kind comments over the last three years. A trip to Indianapolis last week proved my worst fears for many farmers in southwest Indiana, harvest is far from over for too many. Field after field of corn and soybeans still stand, many in waterlogged ground. Some farmers have shared that the corn and beans are not drying in the field and bins are full and there is no where to go with the rest of the crop. What a year 2019 has turned out to be and there are no guarantees for 2020. That’s what makes farming challenging.

I would like to thank my husband, Mark, for his words of wisdom and counsel over the years while writing my articles each week. He is a great sounding board, and after 41 years, it seems we work pretty well together. Our November contracts have all been filled, and we have begun hauling December contracts. December begins our winter meeting circuit. Mark will be in St. Louis for the United Soybean Board, and we will both be in French Lick to celebrate Indiana Farm Bureau Inc.’s 100th anniversary.

We look forward to being in Nebraska for Thanksgiving amid reports of several snow events while there. We hope to have everyone home for the Christmas holiday. We cherish time with family and hope all your family gatherings are filled with memorable times, good food, fun and fellowship. May God bless you all in the new year. Thanks again for inviting me into your home each week.
