Corn is tassling at 2' to 3' high. Showers have brought up the seeds that had not sprouted in the same fields and that corn is 2-3" tall in the same fields. Topsoil is blowing with each gust of wind - cattle are being sold by pairs due to no feed and high hay prices. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Orange Grove 3.3 NW on 5/13/2013
