Harvest winds down as cold starts rolling on in

Beulah got a light dusting of snow Tuesday, possibly indicating an end to the area’s extended autumn. Fortunately, the extra weeks of combining weather allowed most Mercer County farmers to bring in their crops.

The last crops to be harvested every year are corn and sunflowers and many years a good harvest comes down to a race between the combine and the snowplow. This year it looks like the combines won. Mercer County Extension Agent Craig Askim said only a few fields were left to be harvested.
