Two little ones, not enough, but won't be long now until a feed. Only in ground less than two months. Noel

I'm waiting to see how mums plants do this year.

 

We finally got a bit of rain, but local farmers are calling a state of emergency for drought.

When short of water I catch the condensation dripping from the air conditioner. It yields 10 gallons on very humid days. Good Luck, Rick

We're short on rain as well, have had only 3/10" in the last three weeks. Hay is going to be scarce, but I can water the spuds with well water when they need it.

That's one I haven't thought of.

 

We had a good 48 hours of decent (intermittent) rain. Not enough to overflow, but good enough to soak a lot of country.

 

It won't last more than a day or two.

 

Farmers were reporting that no amount of rain would be enough to fix the problem, but we'll see

True. Plants get so far in their life cycle, then can't recover, no matter how wet they are. Noel

The biggest problem we have now is feeding the cows.

this yrs weather is really the wildest. We get rain at least 3 days a week, and most times its 2" or more. It rained in a down pour here about supper time last nite, for over an hour, again we got over 2". We aren't even getting the big rains that are coming down in states east of us. Once again this week it was over 95 and humid, looks like the same for tomorrow. That kind of heat just cooks the garden.

Farming in Saskatchewan means no matter how much rain there is, you're only a week away from a drought.
