Sugarbeets were harvested west of St. Thomas, North Dakota this past week, but it was slow moving east of town. That’s according to farmer Allen Tucker. “Moving east to finish the crop will be a challenge,” explains Tucker. “There are also potatoes and dry edible beans to harvest. We aren’t optimistic we’ll get those harvested.” Tucker says the potato harvest is a priority. “We’ve dug potatoes, hit or miss, here and there. We’ve gotten 80 percent of that done and the potatoes that are left will need an Indian Summer to get them out and that’s not in the forecast.”
