Haha and people say that TEXAS is hot! Haha, you got us beat.Yes we are near Death Valley, not many people make that connection good job! Were actually closer to the Mexican border and much lower elevation.But don’t believe what you hear it actually gets hotter than 135 just at our place in the shade. In Death Valley and much of the Mojave desert it is usually 15 degrees HOTTER than the news says because their thermometers aren’t here in the heat theyre closer to town. Were so far out in the sand dunes it looks like another planet. Upside of that is we have absolutely no predators cause everything dies before it reaches us. Downside the heat is a predator itself. Today and yesterday were beautiful! Only 115 and 45% humidity and were in heaven
I found a tree one day when I had to take an alternate route to a trail I ride. Dh and I went back and checked it last week, but it's still too soon for berries.We are going Elderberry picking and I'll wash those, we'll pick the berries off the stems and I'll wash them again, bag and freeze them. Time to make Elderberry syrup!
