      FRANKFORT - Everything is “growing like a weed,” as the old saying goes, because of heavy rainfall in April and early May followed by unseasonably high temperatures in early June. Fields of fescue grass, timothy, clover and alfalfa are tall and lush. The prime time for that first cutting of hay has come earlier than normal. Landowners are reminded as they go about mowing and cutting hay that deer are with newborn fawns and some wild turkeys may be nesting or re-nesting.
