Anyone else's gardens drying up?
I am about at wits end here. My gardens are crispy. Anyone else have gardens that are caving in to the heat and lack of rain here in the HV? Know any raindances? Maybe if I plant a few plants that have the 'name' rain in them I may get lucky? Unfortunately (and fortunately) we have a well. I am unable to keep up with watering everything this season for fear of runnng the well dry..it has happened twice already this season. We are at 360 feet already.. Normally we make out fine...so just this heat spell doing them in..I've mulched and continue to weed, water the newest plants to help them establish..any other recommendations to help salvage the gardens this year. ( we've even thought about calling someone to bring a large tank of water here for the short term)
Next year I will be considering rainbarrels, but you need rain to fill them. Thanks for listening...JoAnn
