Looking at the radar, it appears that most of the rain is over the central portion of the state. We don’t need anymore rain. None of the farmers around here have done any planting. Most of the fields are untouched. The corn is supposed to be knee high by the fourth of July, and it isn’t even planted. I don’t recall things ever being this bad for farmers. We planted some tomato and pepper plants and they are turning yellow from too much rain. We should be seeing temperatures near 80° by now and we’re lucky to see 70°. I just hope that we don’t have this all summer long.
