We're normally pretty good with our farmers, and you can imagine why. It makes good sense to have farm supports because we don't eat if we don't have food, and farming is an uncertain business.

So then why did Congress not pass a farm bill before going on recess? Political Scientist at Indiana University Christine Barbour tries to answer that question as it relates to this election season.

Grant Gerlock of harvest public media looks at what using more water this summer to keep the drought at bay might mean for future water use.

After that, we visit Oliver Winery's Creekbend Vineyard to see what it takes to grow wine-worthy grapes.

And, Chef Daniel Orr plucks some persimmons off the tree to make a traditional persimmon bread pudding.
