Welcome, CB -- when do we plant our summer veggies...?

This year we're in for a severe drought. 2001 was very dry, and
2002 is proving to be worse. New Jersey is about to put in

only at 49% and sinking, whereas normally they are at 86% and
rising in February. It's gonna be a rough growing season ahead.
