Blog chat: No rain again for the SCV garden
Once again nature denied the SCV gardens a badly needed drink yesterday despite some weather channels guaranteeing us a 100% chance of measurable precipitation. The forecast doesn’t look encouraging for the next ten days either. This is a good time to think about lawn replacements and drought-tolerant garden designing — before the weather turns hot as well as dry, and water costs increase. If you are growing winter crops, make sure they get ample watering. Vegetables are not drought- resistant can some can bolt if the soil is lacking in moisture. Let lawns stay dormant. And keep your irrigation systems set on low here in the SCV. Even in dry periods, gardens are in a slow-growth season so they won’t need the volume of water required in active springtime growth.
