Agriculture brings in $30 million a year, in Burleson County. When it rains, everyone has an opinion.

"This is very good," said farmer Walter Vajdak, of his corn.

Vajdak's corn is lush, in part he says, because the ground, is wet.

"Corn uses lots of water and if you don't get lots of rain and don't have irrigation like in our case, you don't make a very good crop," said Vajdak.

Just down the highway, the view turns from fields of green to fields of gold: wheat and other crops some farmers say they'd like to harvest, but can't because its too wet.

They say they'll wait a few days, and try again, but their plans that could be hampered by the chance of rain in the forecast.

Even Vajdak would prefer the rain to come again another day.

"If I had my druthers, I would postpone it a week, but if we can get it tomorrow, I guess we'll take it," said Vajdak.
