Here's to bountiful harvests and bountiful lives
Kathy_s Commentary
I'm not sure where the summer went, but it sure went fast! Harvest has begun in both the gardens and the fields, bringing consumers healthy produce and commodities that will be processed into other staples. As we drive across Nebraska we'll find farm equipment travelling down the road, moving from one field to the next. Be sure to give them plenty of room as tractors and combines hug the side of the road. In addition to the harvest, fall brings Husker football, tailgates and celebrations. Here's to a a bountiful harvest, a winning football season and many celebrations with family and friends.
