The last 10 days of April were mostly cool and damp, but in the end, the Month of April still finish with monthly temperatures near or even a bit above average. It was a classic example of monthly averages not necessarily being a good indicator for agriculture. Having an average or warmer than average April is a good thing in our climate, but the timing was all wrong with the first half warm and the second half cold. The exact opposite would of course been a much better scenario. May, like April is going to start off on the warm note which is very much needed to get #Plant17 restarted, but some cool periods are lurking in the future.
