|Cracks in my dead yard.|
I don't have a veggie garden, which I'm very happy about this year as farmers are being hit so hard in our state. After they already got hit very hard with our record breaking winter. So what I need your help with is my flowers. I'm fine with my yard dying but I want to keep our young trees alive and our plants. I have a few annuals and I'm just letting them die but I also have a lot of perennials, some of which I've had for years and I would like to save them. Even my drought resistant plants are looking sad.
I have been using as much grey water as possible but I'm having to water everyday but the plants are still dying. I water late at night and I'm having to increase to not only the daily watering but a heavy watering once a week. The problem is the heat is so bad the plants are burning. Is there anyway to help save them without crazy amounts of watering? I know with tomato plants farmers are having to water pretty much all day long to save the plants, I don't want to do that.
So can you help me save my plants? Any great tips to keep them from burning and how to water more efficiently? Maybe also tips on more ways to get grey water? I currently use the water from my dishwasher, any glasses people leave out, and my showers.
