RE: dry weather
This isn't a question, just sharing. Was working at our nearby farm
yesterday and the ground was so dry and hard from the drought here that we
had to use pick-axes instead of hoes for weeding. To plant tomatoes we
hooked an auger to the tractor and drilled holes over a foot deep before we
hit soil with detectable moisture.
The scary thing is that spring is our wet season. I hope we get a break
before you all come to Atlanta for the conference. The urban gardens aren't
so hard hit, but we want to look nice for y'all.
