I went to Valmeyer yesterday and it was a dark and murky drive. Rain was falling as I went down and fields were looking very wet. Monroe county is traditionally a leading wheat producing county. Most of the wheat was looking quite good for the end of February. The field below is in the bottoms north of Valmeyer. The photo also gives you some idea of how bad the visibility was and in the middle of the picture you can see staning water. The past weekend I also went through Washington County another leading wheat producer and the wheat there was looking good too.
