On the coast, in Southern California, summer is sizzling: 76 degrees. My apologies to anyone enduring temperatures less temperate. Being near the ocean gives us some relief from weather extremes, and while we have it relatively easy, our relatives in the eastern parts of our county are suffering. Go fifty-five minutes east and you get triple digits!
No rain. That's always a bummer if you want to keep garden beds perky and green. We are (or should be) accustomed to drought conditions, but it doesn't stop me from pining for a nice, big thunderstorm. Oh, that would be grand. I know even the chicas would run in the rain with us.
Watermelon? A generous helping, for goats and chickens alike.
still mad for roasting them. The other garden stars include sunflowers, and pumpkins. I wish we had a root cellar. I need to decide where to stash these Moonshine beauties, until Halloween.
Complete? Hmmm... the cats are well, all the chicas are healthy, clucky, plucky, and Crumpet fish swims happily enough. Our Farm report is complete.
