Rain and snowfall impact on growing season uncertain

The snowpack, recent rains, and their moisture content are not necessarily indications of a good growing season ahead for gardeners and farmers.  As the temperatures warm up and precipitation falls as rain rather than snow, much of that water will run off.  Door County Extension Agriculture Educator Annie Deutsch says there are also many other variables that will impact planting decisions. 


Winter is also far from over in Wisconsin.  Deutsch says last April's snowstorm delayed planting for weeks.
