Mt. Zion area has been mostly hot this past week. We did get some showers of rain; some more than others. The Corn is tasseling, some fields are a few inches tall. The soybeans are up and doing good. Most all the hay has been baled. As you are driving down the country roads there are lots of pretty purple flowers growing the old timers tell me its horse mint makes good tea for upset stomach and to enjoy.
