It's rained every day here for the last 7 days. Some rains were heavy but brief. Put down 250 lbs. of fertilizer 18 days ago. Plants look kinda happy.

Let's hear your precipitation report ...

Lousy. Very little rain here in the last two weeks. My plants are melting and so am I trying to water them all with the hose daily.:mad:

Anna, I will agree with you on Lousy. I have had only one good rain in all of June. I did have the clouds spit a few drops now and then or maybe they were just sweating. Temps in the mid/upper 90's not helping much. Where is our rainy season?

Hurricane Arthur is moving on towards the Carolinas. Should be drying out here over the holiday weekend. Hopefully the west coast got sufficient rain from Arthur.

Sorry to hear that our West Coast friends have not seen enough rain clouds, I wish I could share. Yesterday we had a faint immeasurable misting, but kept the humidity levels high. Worked in the yard for 6 hours and was drenched in sweat. At sunrise this morning, got a very nice cloud burst. Nice and cool, I decided to step up some crotons into larger containers that was much needed. Now another cloud bust has driven me inside and to the Croton Forum. :confused:

Glad to hear that the rains have finally arrived for some of our West Coastal friends! :baby:

Soon you'll be swatting the blood suckers like the rest of us. Vamp

I have not gone without applying DEET when working in the garden for the last 10 days. Yuck

The blood suckers have been around, even without the rains. They should be having a party now with 5" of rain having fallen at my place since Sunday.

Looks like the Keys are getting some much needed rains. Their precipitation totals have been below normal this rainy season. :jiggy:

I am sure my 90 day fertilizer is gone as well even though it was put down 62 days ago. High temps with all the moisture has dispensed nearly all the time released nitrogen. Picked up some time release K-Mag. Its nearly 2.5 times the price but is a 4 month formula. Hopefully it will stay around the root zone longer.

Haven't had rain in weeks and it's been in the 90's daily:(. Very frustrating. Even other parts of town have had way more rain than us. After a long dry spell got an inch a month ago and a light sprinkle a few days after that. Nothing since. I've been away the last week and everything has suffered. Wish you all could send some my way.
