Yes! You can grow a vegetable garden in a drought or with low water conditions. Here are several tasty drought-resistant veggies that you’ll love.
You may have heard that here in California, we don’t have enough water to wet our whistle. There’s no snow, lakes are drying up, and severe water restrictions are in place.
However, this doesn’t mean that you need to kiss your gardening dreams goodbye. Here are several tasty veggies that we grow in our garden, that will do fine in a drought or with very little water.
Ways to Conserve Water in Your Garden
- Mulch the soil with straw or shredded leaves. This will keep the weeds down and you’ll need to water less often.
- Water in the evening or first thing in the morning to reduce evaporation.
- Use drip irrigation instead of overhead sprinklers.
- Grow vegetables in containers or raised beds instead of directly in the soil. Then you’re only watering the veggies, not the whole yard.
