Prepping for the Long, Dry Summer

The NoBo thru hiker season is winding down and temperatures are heating up. I keep telling myself that I will dig out the Fremont cottonwood tree, touted as future shade when I planted it in 2014, as it is not thriving in its current location and needs more water than I have time to supply; however, I have once again set up the water barrel and irrigation timer for this summer. After a couple of hours of work, and the barrel was in place and filled, and the timer was set to water it and the nearby California sycamore once a day.
