I took the time this weekend to probe a little deeper than my usual 7 inches. I found soil moist to about 24 inches, then very dry. We still need more rain to recover from the drought. WE still have potential to get that rain. It could even come early in the growing season. This year a lot of us made it through the drought with reserves. We need a good bit of rain to have those reserves built up again. I am not in panic mode at this time, we usually do not have two such extreme years in a row, but then again we were certainly above average in rainfall from 2008 to about May of 2011.
