I have not had a rain of .1" or more in the month of July.
This spring when the frost went out, we were dry, no subsoil moisture at all.
We need rain real bad. Fed Crop will help pay bills this winter.
Even some people want to change it, small farmers can't borrow money without it.
If you have lots of money maybe you don't need it. I need it.
This paints a sobering picture as to how bad the drought really is.The heart of the country would need 6-15 inches to end it today.We're in this for the long haul. Gonna take a long time to climb out of this one.
Or another 2008 or 2010?? That wasn't too long ago.
Leaving for vacation for a couple weeks this weekend. Unfortunately, the pops and I will probably be driving back at least every other day to check on the "irritation systems" (irrigation). The drought is rough, but this unrelenting heavy heat is what's really been getting to me.
