After an extended dry spell, for nearly the entire month of May, we got a nice rain over the past couple days. It began Tuesday evening, and looks like the last of it came this morning. All told, we received about 1.2″ (30mm) of rain during this event. It was certainly welcome. Because the rain was mostly gentle, without driving and pounding winds, the soon-to-be-harvested wheat is still standing pretty well. You can see a definite improvement in the appearance of the corn and soybeans. It will certainly jump-start our replanted soybeans put in on Monday and Tuesday. There is a palpable sense of relief and celebration in the farmers around SWIN.
Thank You to our Maker for sending #Alberto to bring the crops of SWIN a much-needed, refreshing drink.
