A Day in My Life: What’s Growing in my Garden

Yes, we have a severe drought in California, but I’ve also figured out some great ways to reduce and maximize water. We’ve made some painful choices (our grass looks like hay), but there are a lot of water tricks we’ve got in place that are simple and easy. Buckets in the showers and in the sink, careful usage of water, super short showers. And even though I’m careful … I have to have a garden. I’d rather have a garden than grass.

Anyway … here are some pictures of my garden in early June. I have one cutting garden to use in my daughter’s wedding.




And I just picked the first cherry tomatoes. Deelish.

  1. I love the smell of tomatoes growing on the vine.
