We have a really nice local weather page published by the National Weather Service. Periodically they publish a drought update. We started the year in severe drought, but today’s update puts us clearly in extreme drought (we’re located South of the words OK CITY).
The deer fencing will be critical to protect my meager gardens. The deer grazing pressure will soon be beyond belief.
I’ve put extra fencing around the blueberry shrubs while I’m installing the tall fence. They’ve just started flowering and budding out and I have no doubt the deer will find any new growth irresistible.
We’re crossing our fingers for a change in the weather pattern.
