During the drought, the grasses lost so much moisture that I was carrying water to the goats. Typically the goats ignore the water trough, but the plants were stressed and didn't have their normal moisture content.
One bonus of the lack of rain is that mango fruit set has been better than usual. If you're visiting this summer, be prepared to pick up local wild mangos anywhere along the Red Road.
Another bonus was that it was prime weather to prune fruit trees and to weed (and weed, and weed, and... you get the picture).
Here's me severely topping a volunteer avocado seedling. Beware the tossed pits, they'll grow up to tower over you.
