Ample rainfall

May 13, 2014 — Ample rain has saturated the soil. As much as 2.25 inches has fallen in the last two days, and standing water covers the landscape.

We are still behind in rainfall for the year, so the area is still experiencing drought. However, at least the crops are watered for a while, and the moisture content of the ground has been recharged.

A cold front has moved in, so temps are chilly.

Late Start

This year's planting has been delayed by a late frost on April 15, 2014. This is the second year in a row that a frost has occurred much later than usual. Last year there was a frost in the last few days of April which required several crops to need to be replanted.
