Randy, do you have raised beds? All that rain must take a while to dry out your vegetable garden.

Spud, The black rabbit knows where the delicious food grows. Will you be putting up some protection from him/her. Do you know if the rabbit is male or female? 

We definitely have the first brush of autumn, with chilly winds, some rain, and lots of thunderstorms. We keep our fingers crossed about fires started by lightning! Fire Dist 8 has had just a few very small fires this summer and they were caused by humans.

I see that Silverthorn Farm has a big event planned for Saturday, September 17th, 2016. What a nice way to get acquainted with their farm. I wish I lived closer. You must be very proud of your daughter and her family!

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.

I think our dehydrator was fro Costco.

Yesterday i picked a batch of Roma tomatoes. i grew them specifically to dehydrate. the plants dont take up much room, unlike cherry tomatoes like Singold that tske over vast spaces. The first batch of Romas are drying now. We go through a lot od sundried tomatoes, and they are expensive. For 50 cents or so of seeds, we'll have more like 30 dollars of dehydrated tomatoes. Not really sun-dried, but thats just a name.

Garden us starting to wind down. Im glad, it was feeling more like a job during the hottest days. nStill lots of beans, pumpkins and squash to harvest, lots peppers, apples.

Randy, how far is Walmart from you, and how far is the "big city"?
