Dry. Warm. Too warm. Too dry. It's not just where I live, but much of the United States is warm and dry. That may be great if you want to play outside in the sun every day, but it's not so good if you want to grow food or flowers, or buy food or flowers that someone else grew.
I've been saving water from rinsing dishes and this and that to water the few things that are popping up. I put it into a bucket just out side the kitchen door and when it gets full I take it out to the garlic or the horseradish, the chives or rhubarb.
It looks like we're having an early spring and the ground is warm enough for them to grow, but it's so dry... but I said that. Keeping things watered may take a lot of creativity this year!
I could grow yucca or cacti, I guess, but that doesn't appeal as a major garden crop.
Other than saving rinse water from the dishes, leftover water and ice cubes from glasses, keeping a bowl under the faucet to catch everything else and praying for rain, what can be done?
If any of you are in a drought condition, give us your tips on survival, please? I don't want to give up the garden, but if it keeps this up, it's going to be very hard to keep it alive.
