We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

What 'The Drought' is starting

Starting to look like:

The grass/weeds have died or gone dormat. I have walked the back yard and have found 'cracks' starting to snake their way around the property. A fine layer of slilt has mostly covered over the cracks but, I found them. This slilt gets into and on everything; making housework a labor of -- NEVER GETTING DONE. ~;>

By this time each year, highway mowers have cleared the farm roads because the 'grass' or over growth would be truckcab in height making it impossible to see any wildlife before darting in front of a passing vehicle. To date in this small slice of heaven; our county is behind in rainfall by 10 inches or more.

So while the North/East coast is getting pounded by the wet.

We are feeling Mother Nature in another extreme.

Thoughts from inside the coop.......
