Cashing crop insurance checks, chopping silage. Making zero money. It's so much easier when things are normal...

Higher electricity bills for the air conditioner and the water well. I water this small patch of clover because that’s all my bees have as a nectar source now. I haven’t got as much done around my acreage as I’ve wanted to this year. I’m going through a lot more groceries as my basement is filled with teenage boys playing xBox instead of playing outside. The heat puts them inside closer to their natural food source (my kitchen).

LIke others, I'm having to water my plants more often. On a positive note, I'm able to leave the top down on my car.
