Black cut worms are out and one grower said they
were chewing on his corn.  They come out at night. 
Just dig around the base of the plant and look for
dark colored, C shaped cut worms.  Pick them
or use a Bt spray to control them.

Also, the diamond back moth is starting to show
up in larger numbers with the warm weather so be
aware as they like ti munch on veggies.

If you are following the rain fall averages, in the local
Register Guard, the current rain fall is as close to
the short and long term averages that I have sen in
years.  As the old timers say, this year is very close
to what the weather was like in the 1950's.
