Fertilizer prices are high.Now, on to new business.As we rode the second half of the Iowa State Fair, we also know that it won’t be long and the combines will hit the field, tillage will start to happen, and we will be setting the stage for next year’s growing season. That is usually accomplished by the farmers who fall-apply fertilizers. However, prices are still up from last fall.
As we catch our breath from our busiest month to date, we look forward to what September has in store for us.Only six total events for the month, two public and four private. Our awesome staff worked their tails off last month and they need a break. You might notice that we are not setting up during the Vinton Car Cruise on the 24th. If you are in town for this event and you are hungry, please stop at "Merchants Grilling" and tell them we sent you! The plan is to hang up our pizza aprons for the day and help them wherever we can.
