We're now officially in a "Severe Drought". Can't prep land when it is this dry, so planting is halted until we have rain. Meanwhile, the undergrowth in the forest has all died out to nearly Winter levels. And the animals, including a really persistent armadillo, are desperate for water. The armadillo is coming right through the electric fence and ripping our drip tape to shreds, causing the plants we do have in to wilt and in some cases die. If we keep water dishes outside the fence full and sardines baited on the lower strand, it seems to keep it out.
