I am flying out of Seattle early Sunday morning and meeting up with my farm partner at the Kansas City airport. We are then driving up to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to meet up with all of the Crop Tour participants that are doing the western leg of the tour.
The plan is to spend Monday to Thursday traveling through South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota. Another set of participants will leave Ohio on Monday and then meet up with us in Austin, Minnesota on Thursday afternoon.
I plan on writing a updated post each night and let you know what we did that day and what my thoughts about the corn and bean crop are. This is my first time of participating and I look forward to it.
