Despite the recent rainfall here in Eastern Kentucky, agricultural officials say it might be too late for farmers growing certain crops.
Over the past few months, Mother Nature has taken a toll on the landscape and livelihood of folks here in the mountains.
James Holbrook has farmed his land for years and taken pride in his tomatoes, beans, and corn.
But he says everything is burnt up this growing season.
Holbrook doesn't depend on crops for his main source of income, which agricultural officials say is very common.
They say more people are gardening to earn extra money and save on their own grocery bill.
Officials say it might be too late for the crops to thrive this summer... but there's always next year.
Holbrook also said the grazing land is burnt up, which will affect the sheep, cows and goats at the farms.
Doctor Ditsch says the silver lining of the drought is that producers do not have to spend as much money on expensive pesticides.
