It started drizzling a little while ago, but I thought I’d go out and check for Japanese beetles in the orchard anyway. Thankfully there were only about 10 (I killed some, but it’s so gross I just ended up shaking some off). Before I could finish checking the last tree (and trust me, it’s a small orchard) it was pouring. And it still is! The sheepies are hiding under a tree. Poor sheepies!
It’s only supposed to rain 1/2 – 3/4 of an inch today, but I hope it is a lot more. It has been in the high 90s with no rain for weeks, and the rainwater tank, pond, spring, well, and everything else could really use a good recharge. We’re by the Swamp River. Where’s the water?!
UPDATE! It has been raining maybe 15 minutes and the rain gauge already says 3/4 inch!!!
