The grass around these parts where I live is as green as can be, this time of year it's always burnt up and brown. I can't remember when was the last time this happened.
I thought we were going to have a dry season???
Everything's growing and looks great, the sprinkler guys can't be to happy.

It was unusually green here too, but the last couple weeks have been hot and dry. Our grass was starting to brown a little and slowing down in growth. Friday night we received about 5 inches of rain, so I guess it will be back to mowing again this week.

Our grass has slowed down growing but is still very nice and green. We have been getting a good steady supply of moisture. The crops around here look very good. So far it looks to be an excellent growing year around here.

I'm looking for a set of half tracking to get at mine.
We got 16 inches so far this month. Average annual is around 35 inches. :confuse:
Never saw it like this before.
Some farmers in the area hit the schedule right and are getting ready for 3rd copy and a few are looking at 4th crop alfalfa. I few other are still trying to get the 1st crop chopper back so they can move on. :confuse::confuse:
Some of that stuff is starting to smell like the cows already ate it.

I have about 15.000 sq/ft of lawn to seed around the new house but I think it will wash away as fast as I plant. :wallbanging:

Hey ducky... Do you live around the Baraboo River area? Didn't that area get hit with a pretty bad flood last year sometime?

We just rolled our 3rd alfalfa cutting yesterday. Hauling it out of field today. Corn ended up looking very nice. Just 2 or 3 weeks from chopping corn silage.

No I am up in the Fox River Valley Area. (Green Bay - Appleton).
Yes they did. and they are getting it again with all this rain.
Finally going to be dry a few days in a row. Expect the farmers will be going after that alfalfa again.

Grass is still green as can be, not normal around for around where I'm at, still cutting every week usually this time of year I cut every 2 or 3 weeks. Every morning there is dew, what ever the grass needs to grow this tear it gets it.

Know how you feel Doug. I think it's 1 or 42 days now of 100+ degree weather with 30 in a row and only about 2.25 inches of rain since the 1st. of Oct. last year. Things are bad, I gave up trying to keep my garden watered as everything that produced was very small like tomatoes the size of golf balls rather than baseballs. I've planted 17 trees in the last 3 years and I'm just trying to save them.
