Finally, we are not broiling here on the farm. We have central air in the house but do not use it. Seems like the times we are away or cannot hear are the times awful things happen to our livestock and our vegetables. So we sleep with windows open as much of the year as we can. The results?! Overheated farmers! It has cooled off and water consumption is down dramatically, Homer has even left the farm to attend cookouts and dinners with friends, and work on the vegetable/flower beds is well under way. This time the drip tape is going down with the compost on the beds. This summer we had 4 weeks with no rain, 1 day with 6 inches of rain, and another 3 weeks with no rain. Drip tape has turned out to be essential but was not in place. We will not make that mistake again.
