Re: Long term summer growing season weather

Yes, indeed, wet is what it looks like. In fact, for example, the wettest spring in Springfield Il (1950) coincided with a La-Nina. There's been 12 in the last 61 years (springtime La-Nina's) and of those 12, 3 coincided with a top-10 wet spring. There's about 130 years of record so statistically one would expect only about 1 year in the top 10 out of any 12. I don't have the detailed data to do a further analysis that would strengthen the conection, but that math is already in the climate models. I bow to your experience when it comes to planting wet fields.
