Now it's honey.
The Rapid City Journal is reporting:
A month-long string of cooler temperatures in the Dakotas this summer has honey producers anticipating a drop in the states' honey crops.
North Dakota and South Dakota are the nation's top two honey producing states, with North Dakota churning out 34 million pounds in 2012 and South Dakota producing 17 million pounds.
Experts say those numbers will likely be down for 2013.North Dakota is #1. I did not know South Dakota was #2, but it must be. I thought California was #2, but apparently property taxes on beehives got too expensive, and the bees downsized their hives. Joking.
So, now it's too cool and honey production will be affected.
And so it goes.
