Just finished up our cleanups today. Starting mulch installs in the morning and Cutting starts Monday. The ground out here is to wet still on some of our properties but looks like the rest of the week is going to be dry.

Not sure when my rain gauge was emptied last, but I had another inch in it last night. I don't think we got that much rain yesterday, but it rained hard for quite some time.

And it wasn't like anything really dried out.

Be careful what you wish for. The way this spring has gone so far, it may be like this in July.
