The intense drought this summer has wreaked havoc on the midwestern farming regions. Author and farmer Gene Logsdon’s neighbors  lost most of their corn. And with biotech companies introducing the first GMO sweet corn to markets this summer, we’re thinking the Corn Moon is a bit of a mixed blessing this year. Between the crazy climate and insane corporations, there’s plenty of food for thought as the harvest season approaches — if not quite as much food for our bellies as we had hoped.
