A farmer’s perspective 7/9/2012:

Dahinda, IL: We are working hard to prepare to replant much of the garden that has been ravaged by this year’s drought! I am going to do more zucchini, carrots, broccoli raab, and other fall garden types. The tomatoes and peppers are still coming but they have been slow due to the 100+ temperatures oner the past week or so.

Russia, India and few other major agricultural countries are also having droughts. Some of them multi-year droughts. In the past, I would say that this is a great time to be farming because the price of food is going to go through the roof. It would normally be a lot cheaper to grow it yourself in years such as these. But since it has been so rough this year in this country as well, I am not so sure!
