It's a chance for women who are really interested in farming to get together and talk. I never much visit with women here at home; I'm mostly standing with the men, talking farming. There just aren't that many women farmers in my area. Sometimes I have to educate the men, but mostly they're not that hard to get along with. Farming isn't work. It's what I do. And riding is also what I do. And there's one other thing that I do-I knit. I take my knitting along with me to all of the meetings. " I do mostly bright colors.

I don't think there's anybody in that state who makes sorghum. I'm not saying they couldn't-we have people in the National Sorghum Organization from thirty states and Mexico. Right now there's a big push to make ethanol out of sorgo juice, and they are experimenting with that. We won't expand to ethanol if it works out, though. Those people will grow 1,000 or 1,500 acres of cane. We grow ten acres. That's a big difference. Making sorghum is very labor intensive. You've got to squeeze out the juice from the stalks and boil off all the water and impurities until you're left with the syrup.
