Seed Stories from Don Hirsch, Du Quoin, Illinois
Don talked about losing his first and second crop of sweet corn due to the drought. He said that the soil is cracked so far open from the lack of moisture that you can stick you whole hand in the earth. But despite these hard times his optimism prevails.
There is something about farmers and their desire for growing and being with the land that carries them through the most difficult times. We can learn a lot from listening to their stories.
Thank you Don for sharing you passion for farming and your seed stories.
