Middlesex County, NJ

Start Date: 9/30/2017 -  
My initial report two weeks ago reported a cool unusually wet summer. We have now had no rain for three weeks. This is unusual for this part of NJ.. Soil is dry down two inches. Some shrubs are showing curled, desiccated leaves. I had to water my garden. The lawn has not browned. Some trees are losing leaves a little early.
