90 Degrees

No I am not talking about a right angle but the predicted high temp for today. April 20 and 90 degrees. That is not normal. Also, we are in a rainfall deficit of about four inches and that gets worse daily.

There were hopes that the approaching front would be the one to bring good rainfall but not to be, apparently. We have had all these fronts and they have given us a little, and that is the operative word, rain and so we are not in great shape at this time.

We are at the time when we can start peanut planting but some areas are iffy on soil moisture and need rain to be ready to plant.

I can only hope the current weather pattern moderates and we can get rain during the growing season to carry the crop along. It is pretty sure there is no subsoil moisture to carry us.
