A Summer Like I’ve Never Experienced Before

During the last year, my region (southwestern Slovenia) received only about 30–40% of annual mean precipitation. The lack of rain has been especially pronounced in the last two or three months. Potato crops are failing, fruit trees are dropping their fruits prematurely, and some of them are going yellow, like in autumn.

Plum is prematurely dropping infantile fruits, the insects then attack it and leave behind only the seeds. The grass is dry as a bone, it crushes under the feet. The last harvest from this tree was in 2020. Photo by author.
