Wishing you a…

Bountiful Harvest!

Yet another year of fickle and contrasting weather. Spring got off to a soggy, cool start. Some parcels of land in the trading area were not seeded at all, while other planting took place up to one month behind schedule. Then with bouts of hot and dry weather, supplemented by overnight showers or rain, favorable growing conditions have resulted in crops being ready for the bin in a time-frame typical of an average year. Some producers have already started to put in the long days required to get the yields off the fields and into storage facilities or off to market. Whether it’s rows of potatoes, carrots or corn from your garden, or acres of field peas, wheat, barley or canola from your field, our wish for you is the same – a bountiful harvest, good weather, safety in whatever you’re doing, and trouble-free productive days. From all of us here at The Camrose Booster and on behalf of our valued advertisers – all the best in the days ahead!
