JD, I know what you mean. We have not had any rain in almost 2 months. I think this has been the driest year we have had in several years.
It's such a period of extremes the last few years. Dry as a bone in one place, then a few hundred miles away....record setting rains. I'm betting this will last a few years before settling back to more average precip.

I am watering tonight and will see how it is tomorrow.
I won't get the RAsberries & blackberries tonight so they will definately get a drink tomorrow.
I'ts all new plantings and I have too much invested to lose them right off to bat.

I watered the last two evenings and most of the garden will recover.
The 75 Strawberries planted Saturday do not look good at all.
It will take a miracle for them to recover.
Hedged my bet and ordered 75 more last night.
If the ones planted make it, great and 150 plants is not excessive.
I don't think you can have too many strawberries.
