Windy and 98* in the shade under the porch.. the weather channel says it's 100*.
I have cracks in the ground I can put my hand into. Many areas around me got inches of rain over the last month. I have not had more than a total of 1/2" of rain over the last two months.. its like the rain avoids my farm..
My Koi pond is drying out fast.. it's about 12" down from the overflow, and dropping fast.. I may be able to clean the bottom of the pond without getting wet this year!! and I'll have the 'oportunity' to buy new fish too !!
I quit trying to save my new grass in the back yard.. I'm worried about my well.. I still water the garden, but the lawn is toast.
I did get a first cutting off the acreage in the begining of the month,, it wasn't anything spectacular, about 2/3 of normal.. but we've had ZERO rain since then, and the second growth is virtually nonexistant.. I certainly won't see a second cutting.
If we got a few days of rain it would help, but I think most crops and lawns are done-for this year.
Our forcast is for 40% chance of thundershowers tonight and 50% tomorrow.. with a drop in temps to the mid 80"s tomorrow..
