The grass is burning and I'm getting tired of watering everything. No rain expected until mid next week ....... Maybe.

About the only thing in the lawns that need mowing are the weeds

We had a front or something come through about a week or so ago and they were calling for 3-5 over the three days it was supposed to be here. It all depended if a cloud hit your area or not. The place Im trapping probably got close to 3. My house and the place I hunt got .7 Whats worse is we planted our dove fields in anticipation of the rain. We need it bad! It was looking good for this weekend, now those chances have dropped to 20-30%. Just hoping the next chance we get that a cloud parks over us for a little bit.

Yep, dryer than a popcorn fart here. Ground is cracked. Didn't bother planting the garden this week. My ground is a mix of gravel,sand and a little dirt. Would require too much watering from my well. I'm going to wait a week and see what the forecast brings

I think this is the driest May on record in our part of the state.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

It has not rained here since 5/20/2023 and there's no rain forecast through at least June 8th. It's supposed to be over 90F by Thursday.

At least all the hay, including ours has been cut an baled, or will be.

Same here as Kyle stated. With parts of Northern ILL and IA showing a lot of dryness, the corn market rallied about 30 cents, even with very low exports so now we are in a weather market for corn. Beans have dropped nearly one dollar the last weeks as the crop i Brazil was huge and China is buying their cheaper beans. They can grow beans for about $30 per ton less then we can or close to a dollar a bushel less.
Really tough to keep the set plants hydrated.
Note the link below showing the drought monitor for May 25, 2023. If you locate Lake Winnebago in WI and look to the right you will see a small yellow dot. Our home is in that area!

A bunch of locations in eastern Pennsylvania are about to record their driest May on record; Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Reading and Williamsport.

Allentown, Altoona, Scranton and State College are all recording their second driest May on record.


Eh...wot?

The wife and I spent the last 4 days in Northeast Pa (bradford county)
her brother was putting up bailage for his dairy cows and he
didn't know if he was going to have enough hay if they didn't get
some rain.
