    Was mowing the trails around my fields yesterday and noticed just in the last week my sunn hemp has jumped 6 to 8" . The beans have grown a good bit as well.

    Yep, last rain we've got up here was 6/22 I think. I went an hour south to water the pears and persimmons. I think my place got a rain on 7/8 based on trail cam pics. I was thankful we got that there at least. My yard is burnt toast.

    I really do hate it for those not getting rain, we have been getting it at least once a week . The day before yesterday we got over an inch.
    It all these popcorn showers that just pop up rain like hell then are gone.

    I mowed alfalfa and one clover plot Wednesday. I need to get some fertilizer on some things. I left a couple of fields fallow through the spring mainly cause I'm working a remodel and trying to get it done before the end of July. Putting floors in now so getting close. I have 3 fields to plant for the fall, the others are perennials. During this heat and unknown if your gonna actually get rain or not, I use a liquid foliar plant fertilizer. I don't have to worry bout burning with it. If we are going to def get some rain from this storm I'l probably toss some 0-0-60 on some fields prior to.

    I sprayed my beans today. Kinda unnerving, and hoping i got it right. ill know for sure in a week or so, but if i get a good weed kill i’m hoping they really start taking off.
    I also sprayed around my pond and will be laying down millet to see if i cant get some ducks to hang around.

    We could really use about 1" to 2" of rain here where I live. Becoming dry once again; mostly, I am afraid of someone flipping out a burning cigarette along side of a roadway setting a field or woods on fire. Or someone burning brush without proper supervision.

    Maybe hurricane Bubba or whatever its name is will bring you some rain.. some models show it going over KY others show it missing us to the west and going around us.
