First off thoughts and prayers to the families of the 19 smoke jumpers that lost their lives in the Arizona fires.
This is the first year that this creek never had any water flowing thru it. Did see one small puddle once after it rained. The sheep do a great job of minimizing the fire danger. Anywhere there are still clumps of grass I spread out small amounts of hay. What they don't eat they will wear it down just walking in the area.
Anyone need any large boulders, there used to be a lot more but I gave some of the smaller ones to a neighbor for landscaping around his pool. In exchange I got a 120 bass accordion, which is sitting in the closet in it's case, LOL, I played a 12 bass in grammer school eons ago, 120 is a lot of buttons.
I rigged up some misters using hand sprinklers, then Saturday I found some really neat brass fittings that connect to the end of my hoses with 3 nozzles on each fitting. I forgot to take a picture of them. They come in 2 and 4 gallons a minute, I used the 2 gallon fittings so far. We will see how my well holds up, I think today since I am going to be putting more out I will run them for few hours this morning, then turn them off for a while and turn back on later about 3 during the hottest part of the afternoon.
I bought some fruitless mulberry trees to plant around the pens, Dollar thinks this is a good place to stop and rest and wait for me. With this heat, I think I will put up the fencing and at least get the trees out there in the pots til I get some more holes dug.
I signed up for the 2103 Tour de Fleece on Team My Favorite Sheep, hopefully I will get thru this back of wool from Blain's fleece, and maybe finish a few others. For my challenge I think I will try spinning some of my angora fiber.
Here is my very, very, first skein of yarn, lumpy, bumpy, kept falling off the niddy noddy yarn, I think I will do a pillow after I do Tunisian crochet and felt it. I have this black and a white yarn with grey, maybe stripes would look good.
11:30 am and it is already 103 degrees, it is only cooling down into the mid 80's at night. Think I will go blog hopping and see how many are whining about all they have is rain and green grass.
Stay cool and say a prayer for the firefighters out there where ever they are.
