It's so dry!

Praying for rain tonight.  We are starting to lose apples off the trees because it is so incredibly dry.  We have trickle irrigation, but that is only a supplemental system and it cannot deliver enough water to compensate for this drought.   We're worried that if it doesn't rain very soon (a significant amount) our late apples will be severely affected.

I really don't like to complain, but farming is not for sissies!  Two years ago the deer nearly decimated our trees in addition to destroying most of our crop, last year it froze during the early apple bloom so volume was down.   This year we started out with a truly beautiful crop of fruit on the trees, and now are starting to lose apples to drought.   Sigh...
