Wonderful rain
[Return to Topics]

Had a wonderful rain last night, about 1/2 inch. This was only the second one since I planted the garden and corn patch about a month ago. Everything was about to die until I started watering. With 100 ft rows and a soaker hose on each garden row, I can keep it all alive, but barely. The corn patch is too big and I was about to lose knee high corn. Hope everyone gets what they need. I'm looking forward to some fresh veggies.

We got a sprinkle over to the east of you. Didn't even settle the dust. 18 miles up the road in town, they got 2 inches.

Our rain for the year (since January) is .19 inches so far!! Not much and it is going to be another dry year by the start so far! More fire danger to worry about again. Mark H.

Mark it just goes ta prove tha "feast or famine" adage. Not that We don't need a lot of water to replace the ground water supply but I'd sure like to have mabe 5 days without it so as ta get My hay crop in tha barn and a lot of Folks like Yourself that won't have much of a crop ta worry about because of NO rain.Wish We could mail Ya a inch er3 of it.
Ours is a local thing, because of tha lakes some neighbors are sufferin from drouth and We are thinkin about buildin an Ark. Ours may stop and We dry up while others will start floodin. Such is life.

We decided to turn the cows out to open range and let what little of our grass we still have grow for later in the year. With the new barn I will be able to get 40-50 ton of good priced hay put up for feed this year and sell a few bales on the side to offset the feed costs. A guy is going to sell it to us deliverd for 65.00 a ton instead of the 130.00 regular price. That will be by the semi load price. We still have a chance to get some rain but it dose not look good and summer is just around the corner too. Mark H.
