I would send some if I could. We have had 8.25" since Sunday. We will break our rainfall record mark sometime in September with three months left in the year.

Feast or famine I guess.

We are super dry here too. There are cracks in the ground, I could plant a fair size tree in. Many of the trees have lost most and in some cases all of their leaves. I got my very small, second cutting of hay, cut today. I hope it stays dry for 4 days and then starts raining, with some breaks, so I can put manure on my fields.

Soil is saturated and in most places too wet to do any real field type work. We were on average 5 weeks lat in our average spring planting date and are now 3 weeks behind in harvest or maturity. We have gained two weeks due to a hot July but still need dry weather to harvest and warmer than normal or more sun if we can get it to move the heat unit crops like corn along. The soybeans are just starting to turn. Some farmers don't have their oats off due to late planting, wet fields and now many are broken down and sprouting in the mud.

Kinda dry here too. Traphound, you missed a good show at Newville.


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

I baled my hay today. I got 219 bales in the first cutting. On the same ground, I got 26 bales today, in the second cutting. Typically I get 120 some to 140 some bales in the second cutting and around 80 if I get a third cutting. I don't think I can get a third cutting this late in the year. We could really use some rain.

I heard only 10% of silage has been cut in our state. At this time last year over 60% had been cut. Everything is too wet from all the rain. I wish there was a way to re-direct it to some of you who need it.


If you think it's OK for Iran to have nukes, but not OK for law abiding Americans to have guns, you might be an idiot.

It has rained 11 of the past 14 days here. Don't know how much that is in inches, but it just keeps coming.
