Crops bouncing back after rains

With many areas around the Door Peninsula reporting substantial rainfall this past weekend, local farmers are encouraged with the status of corn and hay in the fields.  Jim Wautier of Church Site Farms in Brussels says the recent precipitation was long overdue and with another hot spell, a good harvest can be expected later this summer.  He notes that those crops have rebounded well after a slow start.

 

 

Wautier estimates that his farm received over four inches of rain late last week.  According to Enviroweather.com, southern Door County has received 3.54 inches of rain so far this month, compared to 4.57 inches for the same period last year.  Sister Bay has reported 2.95 inches and Kewaunee 3.11 inches for June precipitation through Monday.
