Chief the last two years we have had plenty of rain.. even into July.

It's not always like that... I have seen late June and July, and all grass was brown... it is green and lush now.

I like the green better.

I hope we get a few good rains in Sept and Oct to keep the Seng going this year.

Not sure I will hunt a whole lot, but hope you get to.

We are getting a lot of it over here in TN too...

They are short and we are overloaded... I like to pick tomatoes after 3-4 hot dry days (flavor is best)... but the past several weeks, rain every day, or every other day...

I am picking this evening.. water logged or not.

Got out in the woods a bit today... ginseng looking good, some nice fat green berries on now.

Your corn looks good Chief.

We finally bought a chest freezer and it's packed with corn, beans, tomatoes and salsa/sauce my wife made from maters.

Last year I collected around 280 berries, this year 40! The @%#&% deer have devoured almost all my best plants. Some of the berries I did collect, the plants were leaf-less!. I have one honey-hole i haven't checked but I don't know if I'll even bother.
