Though it would be interesting to see what farm crops were like in different parts of the country.
Here, the corn crop was a high average yield. Around 190 bushels to the acre. Nice & dry, so no drying costs. High test weights.
Soybeans on the other hand were all over the place. Early planted near 60 bushels per acre.
Later plantings & ones not mature when frost hit Sept. 13, as low as 40 bushels.
No other farm crops here of any amount.

Our market garden was good overall. Some things better than average & some near failure.
That's why we diversify & don't concentrate on any one crop.
Nearly done now, as winter is closing in. Snow flurries forecast for next week!
