I have issues. Well all sorts really…but a big one is water waste. I’ve had this issue for as long as I can remember. I think I got it from my long since departed grandmother. Being careful with water just made sense to me.
Having such a large garden comes with fact that I need to use water probably more than the average. This of course makes me feel a tad guilty. With that said…I probably water less than the average person. Thanks to Mother Nature I have only watered my garden once this year. In an average summer, I only water once a week. People are surprised when I tell them this. I tend to make my plants beg for water. I also over the years have planted more drought tolerant plants and shrubs and ripped up the thirsty ones.
I sure wish the gal across the way would stop watering her garden everyday. The waste makes me cringe.
