Looking for rain one drop at a time
The leeks and onions that were planted the last week of April need an inch of rain a week to thrive. It doesn't take much to realize we haven't been on the receiving end of much if any precipitation. Rain is really a love hate relationship. Most of us would just as soon it never rain until we realize how beneficial it truly is.
The Schoolhouse Farmers from the top to bottom set out in force to combat what really is beginning to resemble a drought. A drought can definitely hurt, but has no where near the disastrous effects of unseasonable cold too much water like last year those conditions will simply wipe a farm out. So we are happy to water and wait until Mother Nature opts to lend a hand!
