Some helful info on Alabama...
While searching the web to find the average annual rainfall for my area, I came upon these helpful maps. While the averages aren't set in stone, as we all know, the maps are helpful in determining lots of conditions for gardeners.
Thought I would share the link with everyone. :)
We got just over and inch of rain here today which brings my yearly total to 21.6 inches.
