Papa Creecy always said it was better to get too much rain in the spring than not enough. That was back in the days before irrigation pivots. Of course a pivot does no one any good during the heat of summer, if the land doesn’t dry out enough for spring planting. Too bad these pivots can’t vacuum up water to save for later.
Rain, rain, feel free to stop. Grumpy farmers must plant crops.
This too shall pass.
Happy Friday y’all!

“Too many people talk about the weather, and not enough people talk about agriculture. When somebody says to me, “Beautiful weather we’re having,” I always reply, “Irrigation and crop rotation.”
