And 4 1/2 inches of rain. What a difference it makes.

We are finally getting some rain and it is greening up like Spring.

My millet planted April 24th.

I'm sold, it is some tough drought tollerant stuff to survive 2 months without rain and bounce back like this. This was just 2 week ago.

They are spending a lot of time on it.

Going to turn another group on this tomorrow. It is real thin or I'd consider cutting it.

It sure can bounce back can't it? Looks like the rain finally left us today. Theoretically, we should have several good days of dry weather. I got everything hooked up and ready to go so hopefully tommorrow or Wednesday the ground will be dry enough for me to put some hay on the ground. Won't be cutting any high quality stuff but there will be lots of it cause its rank.

Maybe it is because we haven't seen anything green in so long, but it sure looks good around here right now. Could swear it were spring if it weren't so hot. Been a long time since August was this green. Checked the forecast and they have put rain chances in for Saturday and Sunday. Hope they aren't lying. We need to keep this stuff growing.

Jogee, hope you don't have another Monday when you start get to the hay patch.
