Aw yes, the good old summertime. I’m not quite sure what a toosie-wootsie is -- and I definitely don’t want to be one – but I do know that we all deserve a long and comfortable summer to help erase the memory of the winter from hell. Can you say sub-zero?
The signs of the season are abundant. The young corn is big enough to be “rowed,” the grass requires mowing about every four days and the always-enjoyable burdocks are flourishing. Yes, indeed, it’s summertime in Iowa, and everyone is enjoying this season in the sun. That’s as it should be.
