With all this rain I haven’t been able to spray for weeds or spread fertilizer. Iv barely been able to mow the grass between the rain drops. But I have been getting up on all the garage and mower maintenance. And the garden is doing well, just a little weedy

Mowed the lawn and put up some hay last week. Still have more to go. Might be done with the first mowing of all of it by fall if it keeps raining.

Beef farmer across the street got some hay put away two wks ago when had a four day stretch of dry weather. Round rolls all wrapped. Says he's usually done by now with first mow but only has about a quarter of what he usually gets. A bit of concern as now in middle of June with another week of no dry weather in sight. At least last yr he got enough put away, just didn't haul them back to farm from the outlying fields. Left them wrapped along the edge since ran out of time. All this spring he'd be going past with his trailer of six rolls at a time every couple of days. Needless to say he's a bit worried about how this yr is going.

Yes coming from a farming family background it’s going to be tuff on every body this year. It is officially the wettest year on record here in Ohio

Also in Ohio. My goal is just to not have to bail my yard.

I've given up on trying to make it look nice this year.

I see a lot of farm Fields not planted I really feel for those guys.

I'm in Ohio too... The rain is far from over.

I seem to have gotten less than some surrounding areas but it's pretty wet out there.

Yea all but gave up on the making the lawn beautiful this yea. The weeds have taken over and I hope it will be better in the fall. July/August is around the corner and those months used to be the driest. Can’t walk outside with out the ground squishing. The water has no place to go most of Ohio is afloat. I should have bought a boat instead of a truck

Was dry enough this week there was some planting done. I presume soybeans. A bit late for corn unless chewing it up for feed and dry ears are of no concern. There are still plenty of fields untouched and more rain coming for the next few days. I need to get some more hay cut and put up but do not want it rained on while down. Grass needs to be cut before to dries to the point of being just filler. It looks like I have about 2 weeks.
