If you pop the lead photo you'll notice that it appears the road is dipping into a bowl of pea soup fog. Close but no cigar. In addition to our toast up we had a wind shift that lands us in pea soup smoke from our neighbors in Oregon and Trinity county California who are experiencing fires. God bless them and I am grateful that as mildly annoying as it is I will take their smoke over their fires anyday. We are also under a two day Red Flag warning since the weather is hot and the ground is dry but there are some clouds brewing up in the high elevations which could lead to dry lighting and more fires.
Heck of a way to end the summer but we here at the farm are looking forward to fall and getting into the greenhouse that has been way too warm and sticky to even think about . But I have been thinking and I am looking forward to getting some salad greens going and perhaps radishes and some carrots too.
The excessive heat also delayed Willie and Waylon's trip to their new home.
