Drought and Struggle
The garden is burning up on me. I'm not alone tho, with temperatures in the 90s and no rain, it's last years southwest drought just moved a little north and east. The big field crops are shriveled and it won't be long before they start dying. Who would or could have expected after all the rain last year, this year would be so dry? Mother Nature is pretty unforgiving. It's terrible hot here now. Kind of makes you think about how tough the pioneers, farmers and cattlemen of the west 150 years ago had to be. Living without the things most everyone around you takes for granted is pretty tough.
