Golden days of Harvest

Eastern Idaho Harvests underway

Pocatell0--The sunsets around Pocatello are golden, as farmers start harvesting the first fields of spuds. Temperatures have been unseasonably warm but are expected to drop off later this week with a fresh round of cool, wet weather.

Hay and wheat are in but flat markets have tempered farmers optimism and joy this time of year.

Sugar beet harvest is still a month away, and Idaho farmers have a lot of work ahead of them in the coming weeks.
