What's Happening In Your Garden?
Severe drought conditions are still in play: the MMWD reserve is down to 34% and North Marin is at 28%. One might think of two planting options this winter, one where we get an average rain and one for a continuing drought. Even drought-resistant natives can use a little water.
Marin has a pickup for reclaimed water at the Civic Center in San Rafael but you will need a container. Do remember that water is over 8 pounds per gallon, and there is a minimum of 10 gallons. As always, mulch, as it builds the soil, helps the plants and reduces water loss.
