A good soaking rain came across Iowa, Illinois and Ohio last night. YAY!!! (Albeit along with Severe Weather watches and warnings....)

we have gotten well under 6" since May but did get .2" over the weekend (and not strong storms).Our drop irrigation and fairly deep well keeps our market garden growing and we have a great crop of tomatoes, eggplant and peppers this year.
