Farmers Taking Advantage of a Warm December in DeKalb County in 1943
From the December 26, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"Farmers of DeKalb County are taking advantage of the unusual December weather and hundreds of acres of ground are being plowed for spring planting. It is unusual to see so many acres of plowed ground at this time of the year.
"Farmers say that by now, their labor problems in the spring will not be as acute as in previous years. When the early spring arrives, some of the farmers say all they will have to do is to disc the ground and it will be ready for planting."
