Then, it started raining Thursday afternoon. During the weekend, we've collected 3.20 inches in the gauge, and it's still sprinkling this morning. Most importantly, though, it's fallen fairly gently on the planted wheat fields.
And while there is a lot of time between planting and Wheat Harvest 2015 next June, we are thankful for this moisture to give the crop a boost before cold weather hits and it "sleeps" for the winter.
We began planting September 22 and finished on October 9. (Ironically, I looked up the timetable last year: We began planting September 23 and also finished October 9. How often does that happen?)
|Saturday morning, after 2.30" of rain. We got another 0.90" Sunday evening/night.|
