Weather update

The weather data for central Ukraine certainly seems to correlate with what we are seeing on the ground as per the picture in the previous post.
You can see the full data set at the USDA website here for all parts of Ukraine but the information is essentially the same in all regions; dry.

Rain has started to fall but it tends to be localised thunderstorms at this time of the year; localised as in it might fall in one village and not in the next only 5km away. 

Any rain we are getting is very welcome but for many crops will be too late to lift yields.

Who said farming was easy?
