Drought Disaster

Oh, rain, where art thou? We have been suffering from a very severe drought lately. The Texas State Climatologist reports that the current drought in Texas is the 3rd worst 9-month drought in Texas history, ranking behind the droughts of 1918 and 1956.
corns premature death due to drought stress
The drought has affected my plants and vegetables. And also, our bermuda grass is bit by bit dying out, but I think bermuda grass is drought resistant.

That's the importance of having a deep well reservoir in your house, to take care of irrigation needs of your plants without consuming precious tap water. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
