It's official. My water deliver guy told me that we are now in the worst drought since we built our place 30 years ago. We have received only 3/8" of rain in the past 6 weeks in this area. Trees are dropping leaves, weeds are dying & both Chris & I have been ordering extra water for the past month, as rain as avoided this area like the plague. The farmers are all talking about heavy crop losses here as their crops are either too far gone or don't have enough moisture or time to see the crop to mature properly. We are now concerned that if we ever get a real heavy rain that it could split our pumpkins. Oh well, can't control mother nature. Pumpkins are currently a bit behind last year's numbers. Hopefully with a good Sept we can try to get some of those pounds back. Plant health is key to max growth on the last few weeks.
I know some areas have received plenty of rain & some are like ourselves that haven't gotten enough rain. Was wondering what your region is like this summer & how is it effecting you?
Good luck all.
