A farmer’s perspective 8/20/2012

Dahinda, IL: The rain that we had last week helped to loosen the soil a but but it is still very dry. We would need a few days of rainfall like what we got last week to replenish the soil moisture up to what it needs to be and even then the deeper subsoil would ne be moist enough. I am going to try to plant some fall crops this week including zucchini, lettuce and spinich (in the hoophouse), and the broccoli and cauliflower that I started in flats a few weeks back.
