Climate, Flora, and Fauna:

Climate:
Astrakhan is a rather habitable place, with temperate to hot summers (22-24 Celsius, or 75ish for Fahrenheit lovers). During the summer, the numerous plants- be they cultivated or wild- take advantage of the fertile river soil and grow quite large. Seeds and fruits fall into the calm waters of the river, which feed the fish (some of which are in the middle of mating season)- which gives them a boost in the population and an increase in their weight. The fish and aquatic plants feed the many waterfowl, game-birds and other creatures of flight. While grass is sparse, cattle may be herded up and down the river bank so they may graze on the nutrient-rich water-cress, alfalfa and wild barley.
Hunting and gathering, while more difficult than farming, will almost always bring up some sort of bountiful sustenance in the black forests of Astrakhan. Due to their location by rich river soil, the forest grounds are also prime farming grounds- but the Asrakosians have recognized the need for the forest's timber and the delicate biological community it holds, and have therefore planned to continue farming efforts down the river and eventually to flatter grounds in future areas.
The winters are bitterly cold, with temperatures sometimes coming down to at least 8 to -2 degrees Celsius. Snow should be expected! Therefore, Astrakhan's people will bundle up in sheep's wool, bear skins and whatever winter clothes they can craft up. Wood is seasoned and stocked for personal and communal use and there is always a bonfire with communal stew boiling away in a pot.
