Life is so busy. We have been skating along with little to no rain until last night. We have had to irrigate with a half inch garden hose on a standing sprinkler. We have used a 250 gallon tank in the bed of our pickup to water fruit and nut trees out of hose range. We have had a tree or two to die and the grass was crunchy. All the while we have been harvesting vegetables mainly for our own consumption, putting them up, sharing with friends and family. We have toured a farm to view paddocks used for rotational grazing for cows which we hope to add next year. We are signed up for a poultry processing workshop to learn how to process our own poultry.
