|Texas Drought Continues|
Just saw on the news, CLICK HERE TO READ, that experts say the drought we have been experiencing is going to last into next year as well. We are already behind almost 30" in rainfall for the year. Many small ponds and lakes have dried up, and other, larger ones are now extremely low.
There is a natural pond site on our property...about 2 years ago, I walked over to it and it was full of water...now it's dry and empty and just looks like a low spot in the ground.
I'm not sure how this will impact our gardening, not to mention the fruit trees that I bought that are still waiting to be planted. Sometimes I wonder if we bought at the right time? We want to make a beautiful yard with productive gardens and flowers and peaceful places to relax...but that's going to be hard with limited water resources.
Now granted, we are on well water at the farm but there isn't really any way to know how in danger that is of running low/out. It does come from an aquifer that everyone in the area is tapped into and using.
