Green, with Raindrops

| September 5, 2012 | 13 Replies

Today a few raindrops fell. It hasn’t rained since April, so I grabbed my camera.

This Japanese melon did not get wet, but I included it because it’s green!

This is about all the rain we got before it stopped.

Imagine growing a whole summer garden of vegetables with only city water, but that’s what you have to do in an urban So. Cal garden! Thanks for stopping by! – Kaye

  1. No rain since April is truly a hardship. But at least you can say that you have been fully in control of the amount of water your garden receives.

    • True. When I was in Maine, a farmer there told me so many were struggling with too much rain, and she was going to install raised beds next year for drainage, which she attributed to climate change.

    Your city water grown veggies looking gorgeous 🙂

  3. Great photos – are those limes? Could do with a margarita right about now

    • No, lemons. I planted an ever-bearing Meyer Lemon tree last fall and got wonderful lemons that were developing on the tree. After that, by November there was nothing. It bloomed in the spring, and just now I have about 20 green lemons on the tree, with one starting to turn yellow. Fingers crossed. – Kaye

    I never appreciated rain until having a yard/garden myself….now I am clinging to the hope of rain! Beautiful photos. So glad you found my blog and I made it over to yours because it’s going to come in handy when we get our garden up and going…we have absolutely NO clue what we are doing! That’s half the fun though I guess 🙂

    • Gardening is so rewarding even when it seems that you are failing, because every step you are learning something new. Are you watching the Late Bloomer episodes? I didn’t know ANYthing when I started last January either! – Kaye

  5. Thanks for writing everyone! – Kaye
