We're enjoying the last tomatoes, zucchinis and basils as summer comes to an end.
Instead of gearing up for a late summer/fall planting we have decided to let our garden rest for remainder of the year. California is in a serious draught and it just seems wrong to be watering the garden.
We have already let our back lawn go...and planning on planting more draught resistant plants/trees and fake grass for the kids next spring.
Though we might have some good rain this winter (fingers crossed), we must still make a conscious effort to conserve as much as we can even when we're not in a draught.
NO no ... we are not getting rid of our vegetable garden forever...rest assure it will be back next spring. But we'll be renovating the water system to be more effective :)
