Well, when we made the decision to plant several acres this past weekend, there WAS quite a bit of rain forecast within the coming week (for Stewart Co.). But AFTER we planted, most of that "forecast" is now revised to just "hot & sunny"! Dern hurricanes!

Unfortunately or fortunately, I'm not sure which, we did get some rain yesterday evening in Stewart County. In one area, I'd say a good half inch fell over about 30 minutes, yet nearby it was barely enough to settle the dust, but probably enough to germinate what we planted, only to sprout in a dust bowl. Most of our freshley planted plots were in the areas that just got the dust settled. Oh, well. Maybe that "lake effect" will become the saving grace before the plantings sprout and die.

It had better rain. I sweated enough to supply enough water to rain on at least two of the plots. \:D

When you weren't riding around in an air-conditioned truck eating barbeque!

Believe it or not, it came a good rain over at the farmhouse, but when I started checking plots afterward, some had barely enough rain to settle the dust ---- and those dadgummed big feathered rats were having a feast. Doubt if there will be much left to germinate after a few days of turkeys gone wild.

what is the forcast for East Tn. I am in Athens and the 7 day regular forcast by the tv says no rain or slight 20% chance.

Better chances of rain in East TN than West or Middle.

It actually rained again before dawn this morning in Stewart County. Not much, but more than enough to settle the dust again. The farther north in the county, the more rain fell. I'd say the early plantings (Aug 18 - 19) have now had enough rainfall to germinate. Maybe, just maybe, we're going to be lucky with these early plots.

By the way, BSK, the CainMasters came in with their heavy equiptment and you wouldn't believe how well the plots were tilled up. The ground was so hard that a 4-wheeler disc wouldn't even scratch it. But their tractors and heavy equiptment just churned it up and roto-tilled it into a fine powder about 8 to 10 inches deep. No way would we have even considered planting had we not had this ground churned up so well. Of course, I may be re-planting it all in a few weeks if there's not a good amount of rain next week, and the next, but at least the ground has been well worked up.

I hate to predict this because every time the 10-day models suggest precip out at 8-10 days, once those dates draw nearer, the prediction for rain disappears. But right now the 10-day models suggest an opening of the Gulf next week and a much improved chance of rain Sunday through Wednesday. The models are also predicting the first big Canadian High Pressure to push into TN by next Wednesday/Thursday (Aug. 29/30) with cooler weather.
