Drought update

Well, we got a little rain today with the thunderstorms and cold front coming through southern Ontario.

But these systems are pretty spotty, so the bottom line is that we didn't get nearly enough rain. The total was about 4/10ths of an inch. Add that to the 3/10ths we got on about June 8th, and here we are coming toward the end of the most important growing month of the year with under an inch of rain. Ideally, you want an inch a week in June.

All I can say is: It's a good thing we're not farmers. At least making a living doesn't depend on the rain.

    I know how you feel, I too live in Ontario. St. Thomas actually, and we need rain bad my vegies are suffering and no matter how hard I try I can't give them water like a good rain.
