Last night the air conditioner was officially turned on. The high temperature tied a record at 96 degrees. This is the earliest I can remember that our air conditioner has been turned on. It appears that these warmer temperatures will last through Wednesday.
In the meantime, growers should be able to finish their planting this week after a wet and cool spring. Keep plenty of water with you if you have to be outside and watch those lawns take off as soil temperatures rise at this time to promote very healthy growing and greening.
