File under: reasons I am not cut out to be a farmer.

We got an email about our CSA pick-up:

The typical monthly rainfall in Maine is about 4 inches.  We got 3 inches of rain between Sunday morning and Monday morning, which is a REALLY big rainstorm. This 3 inches of rain came immediately after the 7 inches of rain that fell between Saturday noon and Sunday morning. So we’re at 10 inches of rain (plus my tears), and it’s still raining. According to the Soil Conservation Service, here in Maine we can expect a rainfall of 6½ inches in a 24-hour period once every 100 years.

In short, they may not be able to do a harvest this week because the fields are too wet to walk on.
