Aug 3 ~~Harvest has begun!

We had a VERY dry summer and have been irrigating all summer it seems! We had a three inch rain all at once in June, and it has been measured by the drops since! We might get 20 drops, 5 drops…we have nearly forgotten what the wet years were like! Anyways, harvest is here! We are harvesting our Rocamboles first! They come on a little earlier than the Porcelains!  11 days of harvest! We are able to lift about 10,000 bulbs a day give or take. The weather, as I mentioned, is beautiful–kinda like the Arizona desert at the moment. Lots of drinking water required, and these are the days I am glad I have buried some much needed prepared meals in the deep freeze!
