Beet of the Heat

Posted on July 24th, 2020 by Kiva Dobson

Lately I have been slightly uncertain of what to do. We are experiencing drought this year on a level that is scary. The vineyard has not had constant irrigation all year even with my efforts to conserve water usage in the garden the tank is not able to fill up. It has been 3 weeks now without water. The vineyard can struggle through this without much difficulty but the garden is showing signs of stress. We are struggling to keep things growing but the heat causes plants to bolt. Our tomatoes, corn, squash, and tomatillos are doing great and will be ready in a few weeks. Please bare with us as we negotiate this challenging circumstance.
