Dry Weather Continues
The neighbors have washed their cars. I’ve ran the sprinkler in my yard almost constantly. I’ve even sent out a press release or two talking about how dry it is! I’m doing my best to jinx it to rain!
The Rock County Airport reported light rain at 1:35 am (June 21, 2012), but there was no accumulation reported (not even a trace). On Thursdays, the US Drought Monitor provides an update. Rock County continues to be “abnormally dry”. We recommend you continue irrigating your gardens and landscapes.
Master Gardener Plant Health Advisors are available to help you determine the best methods to irrigate your lawns and gardens. Call (608) 757-5696 to speak to one, Tuesday through Thursday, at the Rock Co. UWEX office, Janesville.
