It is raining in the Willamette Valley.
Rain is good for the soil, less irrigating.
However,  rain can soften the raspberry
and blackberry crop.
Rain can cause the shoulder of some tomatoes
to split and crack.
Being wet AND warm = apple and pear scab.
More white powdery mildew is showing up with
the warm weather.
High prediction of powdery mildew on grapes,
prune back vines, apply wettable sulfur so the
PM does not affect the grapes.
