An optimist is the human personification of spring.

"What would you like to say about the wheat in an update?" I asked my farmer.
"Well, let's see," he said ...
"It looks great, better than it has for several years."
"It's tillered and filled out."
"There are no mud holes, but it's also not dry and blowing away."
"It's one of the things looking great right now."
"It looks like a hundred-bushel crop ... Well, maybe not quite."
After his Kanza Co-op board meeting on Monday night, he had even more good news:
"Do you know what the latest shortage in grocery stores is?" Randy asked.
"Nope. I just know you still can't buy toilet paper." I said."It's flour and yeast. Everyone wants to make their own bread!" my farmer said. "Maybe that will help boost the price of wheat."
Well, I guess the market didn't hear that news yesterday because commodity prices took another dive. But there's always hope, I suppose.
And, by the way, his co-op board meeting was conducted at three different locations to make sure they didn't have more than 10 people at the same location and could maintain their 6-feet of separation. Technology for the win!
