Well, it looks like my fears of a drought this spring and/or summer may just be coming true. Most of the rivers in the state (and in Connecticut and Rhode Island) are far below normal for this time of year, and there is already talk of how this will affect fisheries and agriculture. I wonder if we will have problems with fires this year. Hopefully nothing too bad. Anyway, I need to check on the level of water in my rain barrels before I do any major planting this year. I still hope to do some herbs in pots if nothing else.
