Thank you all, dear Readers, for the good wishes. I am back in the saddle again. The high pressure system has entrenched itself and the temperature is again over 100. It is looking more and more like we will break our previous record of 60 days over 100 degrees in one summer.

Due to the early spring, high summer temperatures, and lack of rain, the summer produce is gone and fall produce has arrived. I bought my first pomegranate yesterday. Apples and pears are abundant. Brussels sprouts and beets are starting to arrive.

The sun comes up now right through the kitchen window and lights up my fruit plate.

  1. I read that the earthquake in the San Francisco area unleashed under ground water which filled dry lakes and creeks. If so, that was a blessing in disguise.

    • Unfortunately, that is not such a good thing, after all. It appears that the earthquake’s movement of the rocks and such that brought up those underground streams will wreak havoc with the water table and cause problems for those who pump water from underground. Here in the Valley, the water tables have fallen so much that it now costs over $300,000 to drill a new well. Corporate farmers can afford that, but the little farmer or the homeowner cannot. Many people in small towns are without water right now due to this.

  2. Nice picture! I don’t think I could deal with that kind of heat. When it gets above 75, I begin to feel too hot. 🙂

  3. that’s a beautiful still life photo! Glad you are feeling better!

  4. I wish we could get a bit of your heat for just a few weeks in exchange for our cooler temperatures and moisture. I do pray you all get some rain soon.
