Long Harvest Season Winding Down in Southern Iowa
FREMONT, Iowa-Wednesday was the last day of combining corn for Mark Hedge, who has farm ground on the Mahaska and Wapello county line. Hedge farms along with his brother and a nephew, they cover around 1200 acres of farmland. He saw a twelve-inch snow cover his fields with corn still standing. On the last day there were eight rows of corn in a couple of foot-tall snow drifts along the fence. Other corn in the field had been laid down, due to the snow.
