It has been raining here for the last 4 days. This was something that was greatly needed here as we had terrible drought here last 7 years. There are creeks running that my husband hasn't seen run and dams full that he hadn't seen full for a really long time. It's awesome. We were fortunate the year before last to get some hay and the year before that to have hay. Last year we didn't start a tractor til late September first of October for when they released the CRP. The last few weeks we've been getting little showers when needed. We've been able to get our oats planted and our grass and alfalfa planted. This is a good thing. I don't have all my garden planted but do have 1/4th of it planted. It will have to be worked up again not a big deal. I will submit a picture of our place last June for those of you and will take some around the place of this year to show the differerence between last year and this year. I have already mowed 3-4 times between rains, and still not complaining. After all the pictures get uploaded I will add them to this forum. My chickens are doing good and the ducks are loving the rain.
