End of Summer Harvest and Draught

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 :)

Nice harvest of tomatoes. It is a shame California is having so many water problems. I feel your pain, I live in northern Ca. We need rain.

I feel you, this drought is so unfortunate. At least tomatoes don't need a ton of water. I hardly ever water mine. They're even tastier if you make them work for it.
