However, in July, the heat was above average for many days, the plants adapted to this trend, they still survived amidst the drought and the extreme heat. Everything seemed to be good but a strong hail on 26th of July threatened to jeopardize the harvest. Even though it was violent, but fortunately, it did not last long.
