Yeah itís been a little on the dry side since middle of May. We have been cooler by the lake so we probably arenít as dry as you, but it was a very welcome rain. Not a big one, but enough to help for a little while.

Glad you got a little rain to Pappy. Sounds like it missed a lot of people.

My cousin who lives about 30 miles west of me had hail yesterday. Tore corn up but it should grow out of it.

My brother works about 12 miles west of me and he said yesterday a storm popped up at work and it rained for a hour. The system never moved. Just popped up and rained until it used itself up. I didnít get a drop.

Iím not complaining. Our crops are small yet and Iíd rather be slightly on the dry side than to wet. The small crops just donít need a lot of rain.

Our Black Beans are coming up beautifully.

looks like a nice stand of beans Bj.

Got .3" on Monday. first rain since May 20th. It came down last night, have not checked the gauge yet but guessing close to an inch. Very much needed. Some of the dwarf trees leaves were starting to curl up a bit. This rain should put most of the irrigation on hold for a while. Last thing I want is to have to put pipe in the orchards, It happens but such a pain.

I thought I saw someone waving at me.

My cousin came back from California for his annual rebutting of the soul visit.

Maybe you could see our campfire. Hope the music wasnít too loud.

Sure was a beautiful night for a campfire. The big lake was providing the air conditioning. The fire felt good.

It was so calm. The lake was as flat as it gets. It was perfectly quiet. Isnít that way very often

This is why I like to get our sugar beets planted in April if the ground is dry enough.

The first picture is of a field planted in May. First it got to dry and some of the beets didnít germinate. Then it rained and some more came but not a great stand and very far behind.

The next picture is of our beets planted in April. It took three weeks for them to come up, but when they did they came up really nice. I planted this field without any tillage this spring. Right into a live rye cover crop.

PS glad the first pic isnít my field

This is what the field looked like when I sprayed it. We got a lot out of this rye, yet it wasnít to much that it hurt the beets. Now the worms are taking it under ground and building up our soil.
