  • Jun 3, 2023 | 13:12 4 I don’t have much faith in weather forecasts.
    Seems they can’t even get one day out right.
    Last two nights the weather network had us pegged with 100% chance of 10-15 mm. Radar showed a line of showers with dark green and reds west of us and moving right over us. Both nights we got nothing and that’s a good thing! Reply With Quote

    From what I've seen is that they expect the pattern to change around June 10th. What it'll change to I don't know. Reply With Quote

    Better change to warm and dry here or may as well stick a fork in this crop already. Reply With Quote

    Just had another inch in less than an hour. Not much hope for little canolis now in this gumbo, plants were already turning purple from the 3 inches prior. Reply With Quote
    Jun 4, 2023 | 06:30 11 Imagine the crops we could grow if we could borrow everyones excess water and put it where guys are running low. Running on the short side this year so far but small mile wide t- storms droppind 1/2 inch here and there around the RM. Reply With Quote

  • Jun 4, 2023 | 07:45 13 Good morning all.

    Total rain for us for this week was 1.3 inches !! Very thankful for this one as some of the crop was sitting in semi-dry dirt. You could almost see the difference overnight. For my part of the country , this was very welcome indeed. Hell , I might even have some hay worth cutting in a few weeks, guess i better get my 8830 tuned up!

    Complaining about too much rain over here just doesn't happen. We are always looking for extra. Reply With Quote

    14 day weather forecast for my area shows a few days with a chance of showers but no forecast for rain in any of those 14 days. Was talking to a neighbour last night. His agronomist told him not to spray his wheat until it rains. Crop under too much stress already. Still less than an inch of rain here since snow melt. Not good. Reply With Quote

    We had that forecast for 6 tenths on Friday night but only received less than a tenth.
    Last night we were forecast for a tenth and got a welcome 1/2 inch out of 3 separate little thunderstorms that only lasted about an average of 10 minutes each.

    Yesterday they took all the rain out of the forecast,now they have 60% till Tuesday.

    It's all good so far.

    Looks like the garden of eden this morning. Reply With Quote

Water erosion in the fields. Still have seeding to do. As do others. Need rains to hold up and save a little for July. Reply With Quote

    Jun 4, 2023 | 16:25 19 Took a couple days drive down to Williston N.D.Lots of acres to seed the whole way, further south more to seed. Several drills going today.Crops not great looking from road, too much moisture in most.Maybe this heat wave will help. We received 6/10 over the weekend.Total since May 01, 1.2 in Reply With Quote
    fjlip's Avatar Jun 4, 2023 | 19:57 20 2.6" in 4 rain days, since seeded, very thankful. Heat is pushing crops and weeds. A few miles away DOUBLE that amount and ponding taking acres. T- storms too hard too fast....Quill Lake flat land an example of 4-6".

    Heard Gilbert Plains had 5" in half hour, sad mess. Reply With Quote

    Yes , that’s what we are afraid of here after the past few years . Having near zero subsoil moisture and barely enough rain to get a crop last year . Some was really good but we did run out on at least half the farm and yields dropped big time .
    We are in good shape now but still on low subsoil so it can fall off quickly Reply With Quote

    Jun 6, 2023 | 06:50 28 Finaly got a good shot tonight. After 3 tenths on Saturday and 1/2 inch may long.
    You only had to go 3 miles to be 3/4 - 2 inches ahead. Feel a lot better now. But dam thats annoying . Reply With Quote
