Harvest pace is slowing 10-18-2019 The last rainfall averaged 1.5 inches plus or minus a half inch and the ground soaked it right up. Now we face a similar forecast this weekend and a passing shower on Tuesday. After that, if you want the optomistic forecast, look at Accuweather as they indicate the rest of October will stay pretty Dry. Weather.com doesn't look too bad but they do show a 50% chance showing up again before November. Overall, Its not bad, and pretty much what we have been used to most years, only this year, it has been so perfect up til now, it seems a bit disappointing to have our picking speed cut in half. Good luck, Stay safe, and enjoy the 2019 cotton success.
