    Oh, that's great.

    Let's see:
    Diesel fuel at almost $4/gallon.
    Most maintenance items at record high prices. (tires, batteries, filters, oils, etc, etc)
    Western Lousisana and most of Texas in the worst drought on record.
    And now, you wanna tell me that hay string is going up?

    I should just shoot myself and get it over with, but the price of ammunition makes that cost prohibitive too. (just kidding)

    Once upon a time, Kentucky led the US in hemp production. After the need for hemp rope declined (end of WWII) production was outlawed here. There is a major push to legalize hemp production again, being sponsored by Kentcky's new Agriculture Commissioner. He has a lot of backing from both Republican and Democratic sides of the isle.

    For you hopefull folks the Hemp I'm refering to might make you cough and end with a sore throat rather than an eterostic experience.

    Hemp is an excellent agricultural plant that has many varied uses from fiber/seeds/oil.

    Most of my poly twine comes from Canada. There's a few guys that use sisal. They burn it and don't worry about fumes and leftover slag.

    The local landfill recycles commercial fishing gear and will also take old plastic twine, too. That's were my twine goes.
