Too rainy in Ohio

nosambosMay 23, 2008

I'm in Cleveland. April was rather dry but May has been wetter than usual. The plants in my native area are looking a bit yellowed and the random milkweed popping up is extremely chlorotic. Have any other locals noticed this? I guess the solution is dousing the area with Miracid fertilizer with iron. Any other suggestions?

I'm in NY not OH but our April rains came in May instead. I would not be too quick to fertilize natives. This too shall pass. Keep weeding to let in light and air.
