It is so hot that all my veggies are burnt. Hay has turned to dust, the birds are standing in the brook all day and the cows won't come out of the shade. The hens have decreased their egg productions and sit in the coop on a divider board so they can look out the window instead of coming outside in the 102 degree heat. Who said hens were dumb ? I have been bringing them frozen blueberries and putting ice cubes in their water fount. They LOOOOVE the frozen berries. Cold oatmeal made them happy too.
I have gone through all 22 of my T shirts the last 3 days. I am about to do laundry, knowing it will only take 3 minutes for all my clothes to dry on the clothesline in this heat.
Make sure you all stay hydrated and make sure your animals have plenty of shade, plenty of good clean water and plenty of everything else they need as well. Heat kills. Stay safe, think smart.
