With the forecast predicting rain for the next 10 days farmers and gardeners, who we are all about in this part of the country, are getting worried, as many fields and gardens are already too wet to plant. Those that are planted, haven’t had enough consistent heat to start to grow. Last year’s hay is getting scarce and may need to be driven from further away, increasing the price. However, fruits trees, and other garden plants and shrubs are bursting with bloom and are robust with healthy growth.
