  • Unless you are cultivating cranberries or rice, all this rain is likely thwarting your spring gardening plans; it sure is for many farmers in our area, which is my primary concern.  
    While perspective is important in these matters, many home owners may see a little stress in their landscapes as a result of over a week of soaking rain.
