Break in rainy weather means it’s time to get busy

Slideshow: Central Pennsylvania looks mighty green with all this rainy weather.

It’s been a rainy spring here in Pennsylvania, and that’s being conservative.

Some places have gotten 5 to 6 inches more rain in the past 30 days than they do in a typical year. As a result, it’s been mostly stop-and-go when it comes to fieldwork.

The positive of all this rain is how green everything is. And it was nice earlier this week, which gave farmers the chance to finally get caught up on some field work.

Here are some shots of rural Berks and Lebanon counties as planting season keeps rolling along.
