While today looks to be another beautiful day, heavy rain is forecast for tomorrow and tomorrow night. This rain might cause severe losses in our tomato fields due to cracking. We plan on picking as many ripe tomatoes as possible today. Similar heavy rains in the past has brought an untimely end to our canning tomato harvest. The rain should be over Saturday morning and the rest of the weekend looks good. After this rain a lengthy spell of pleasant dry weather appears to be in the offing. The heavy rain tomorrow shouldn’t bother our other crops but it can decimate our ripe tomatoes. We shall see…
