I actually really enjoyed reading these!
My husband works in the AG industry now so I thought it was pretty cool to see the historical reporting.

This years harvest was actually late here in the central valley due to the heat and Hubby has been working extra long hours.
I'll have to share these with him!
Glad you like them. When I read the 1868 newspapers I come across farm reports a lot. There is stuff in them that you would not expect.

This report from a NY newspaper combines politics and economics in a way similar to what you see in the Southern newspapers:
