Recent Rain

Moisture conditions in our area have had a boost from recent rains. We have been probing moist topsoil ll spring, but there have been concerns about drought.  Subsoil has been moist when I have done septic tank borings, but our recent rain should give us hope of a good crop.  July and August rains will be needed to have the bumper crop that USDA is forecasting.  Yesterday, we sampled fields that were almost too wet. We will not be sampling except possibly on foot for a few days.    The map below is the past 3 days rainfall totals in our area.  Click to enlarge.

We are over 40 inches since Oct 1. That is a lot of water!
