The black rabbit is back. It found it's way into my yard and has been here for 2 days now. It's not eating my plants that I can tell, so I've left it alone. I think I saw it eating a weed, and I've seen it eating some damaged pears that I threw in the garden.
No desert here (IN): 36"/yr, pretty much evenly distributed monthly. Amazingly, we often have drought conditions during the rainiest months of June and July. That's because of the high evapotranspiration rates. And six inch snows take forever to melt!
at 12.1 inches a year, this is how Pocatello, Idaho appears:
at 16.56 inches of rain a year, this is how Spokane, WA appears:
Now that august is over, the rain is starting to come again. I received a whopping 0.2 inch yesterday!
I was reading about the largest desert, the Antarctica, and the article said a desert is defined as receiving less than 9.84 inches of precipitation a year. It dawned on me that I may live in a desert, but no, I receive 12.1 inches per year.
Daniel, sorry I haven't read your garden blog in awhile. Good update here. No Costco nearby. Think I'll check the internet (dehydrator). My nearest Walmart is 10 miles. The "big city", Spud, is 18 miles away--Lafayette. Indianapolis is 50.
Dug up a lot of potatoes the past 3 days. Looking good. I didn't cut through too many of them. I still have some late plantings to dig. And sweet potatoes to be dug in October.
Randy, how far is Walmart from you, and how far is the "big city"?
Daniel, I went to my local Walmart (I know, ugh) recently to look for a dehydrater. Found none, but wound up with a hot air popcorn maker. Looks like I'll have to go to the "big city".
Joan, thanks for the photos plus fruit fly info!
Another young urban family takes to Permaculture and a rural lifestyle. It appears they are new to the tasks, and they have some excellent advisors. The man of the family seems to have carpentry skills. I hope they succeed. I suspect the are somewhere near Spokane, although all they reveal so far is their farm is in northeast Washington State.
Fruit flies! Swarms of them every summer until I get out my supplies to eradicate the pesky things.
