Better late than never
Over the past 36 hours we finally revived some spring precipitation. Since late Tuesday evening through Thursday afternoon we have received over 1.5 inches of rain and 8 inches of snow. What a great sight after being so dry over the last 9 months. This steady rain and snow will also help us flush our soils of sodium. Just last week we did some soil tests and noticed a increase in sodium in the soil from last year. I contribute this to the lack of natural moisture and only irrigating through our irrigation system. It would be interesting to do another soil test to see if the sodium has been flush through the soil profile.
