Lots of apples on the trees this year.
You can see in the photo just how brown the "grass" is. It's a little greener in the shadows of the trees, but out in full sun it's just burned to a crisp. We haven't had any rain to speak of in nearly three months. The trees are okay as their roots go deep, but most surface dwellers are thirsty. I water the vegetable garden every day. If I didn't, we'd have a lot of sun-dried tomatoes.
