this week on the farm
This week the orchard is being irrigated. Temperatures are well over 100 during the day, so the trees need a drink!
As you can see in the second photo, the hulls are beginning to split open on the Nonpareil variety as harvest time approaches in a few weeks. (Thanks, Sis, for the great photo!) When I talked to Dad on the phone tonight, he was watering down the dirt road around the orchard to keep the dust and dust mite under control.
