Ohio ... virtually zero corn planted. Farmers starting to get worried. They had to call out some crop dusters to spread something to kill the fungus now attacking their winter wheat and alfalfa. They just can't get on their fields, and with the weather, probably won't be able to do so for another week. |
Even my husband, who thinks I'm an alarmist, is agreeing it's going to have a big impact.
Anectodally, my garden sucks the big one. Have planted potatoes once, dug them up (rotten potatoes smell something bigtime), planted a new batch, which will need to be dug up and replanted. Tomatoes? Maybe half will survive the wet conditions. Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower? I can't even find my seedlings.
