I know what you mean,
I have apple trees, pear trees, and black berry bushes that are loaded. And I think they may drop ALL their fruit before they ripen if we don't get some rain.
But you are in a much more sticky situation.
No pun intended!

Your last aim was a few counties too far south. I understand sending it from California might take a couple bracketing shots. So raise a few counties and fire for effect.

Well while corn and beans are sitting there saying they need a drink at least wheat harvest looks to be the best ever here. Going over 100 bushels/acre what we did today.

That rain insurance you bought for last fall is working at the wrong time of year! Lol!

Scheduled BBQ with friends, wife washed van, outside windows on house, left grain bin top open last night...nothing makes the rain come. I do have a chance the next 3 days. After that we go crazy. Would like to contract more corn for fall delivery right now but we do not dare contract more than 40% of normal crop right now. But we do not put all our eggs in one basket. Wheat is best ever and I have this silly thing called a giant corn maze and haunted trail where people come and hand me money to have a good time each fall. Diversification.

Your last salvo went just north of us. Split the difference and lay it on me.

You nailed it that time...bullseye! Now just send about 1.5 inches instead of .15 inches. Actually the .15 inches did nothing but damage. Did not soak in far enough to corn or bean roots but it will lower the test weight of the wheat still in the field. Just send a much bigger amount next time.

.15 was the best i could do on such short notice. I will try again soon : )

BULLSEYE!! We got 1.2 inches. But man did you pack a punch with the wind. I have days of clean up from branches and trees down all over the farm. Even blew an empty grain wagon uphill!
