Winter Drought

By Cheryl Conklin

This scant, sugary dusting of snow is the only kind of moisture we’ve had in months.

Next time you’re home and the temps are up into the 50s, get out your hoses. Give everything except the cacti and native plants a soak. Finish before temps start to fall. Unhook and drain the hoses. Then pat yourself on the back for saving some lives.

Your garden thanks you. Your trees adore you. Your grass can’t wait to kiss your feet.
