I am new to this forum and realize I just barged in with a couple of posts without properly introducing myself, my apology. I've been on Garden web quite a while and didn't think. I have many years of gardening experience and live in Central Oklahoma. I'm growing Southwestern natives but don't have a vegetable garden (no space) and love talking about gardening.
I was wondering if anyone has heard any long range forecasts? I heard earlier this year we were in for an active hurricane season and I wondered if it will break the drought? Seems an awful thing to wish for though.
We got rain last night here in OKC. Ours always goes north so I wasn't holding my breath when they forecasted it and was surprised it actually fell on us for a change.
My lavender is now biting the dust. I had posted a list of drought hardy plants that are doing fine in this weather and this one has now been demoted. I think its the heat that gets them here in Okla because I always loose them after a couple years or so. I am trying to establish native grasses this year. I picked a good year for it. My sister cleaned off her entire property almost bare and is attempting a prairie. She also picked a bad year. Fears she will have a water bill higher than her house payment.
