Today has been the hotest day for at least a couple of years (30 degrees).

The drought over the past month and planting season has ended with the first rain. It was a thrashing rain accompanied by thunder and lightning.

The rain has cooled things down a bit. I can go out to work again, and I won’t have to water tonight.

Now that I’ve microweeded thoroughly and created mini monocultures, I turn on the water. Soon the weeds will be back making polyculture again. 


It’s been very dry this spring, but almost everything has grown very well with a bit of spot watering. Now for some mass watering. 

It’s been a very dry summer and altho I try to water, it’s never enough. In spite of the drought, just about everything has been growing surprisingly well. 


Now we are finally geting a substantial amount of rain.
