A farmer’s perspective 9/1/2012

Dahinda, IL: I put a 450 gallon water tank below a downspout on our garage. With the rain we got it filled to the top. The rain also helped loosen the soil so that I can finally start some fall crops. I am hopefully going to get some lettuce, broccoli, and spinach in this weekend. The soaking rain also means that the soil will have enough moisture to plant garlic next month.
