The drought has become even greater. So many of our trees and shrubs are dying as the water in the soil dries along with the lakes, ponds and streams.
Fall is my favorite time of year -- and the figs produced by my few bushes are relished by me! Yet this year, despite water rings around each small plant, they've been able to produce only ONE small fig.
There is little rain in sight for the next few weeks and already some of the towns are counting the days remaining for water supplies before they have to ship it in from somewhere else.
