Green Your Garden: Water
Want to be the ultimate locavore? You needn't go farther than your own backyard. This week we'll provide tips to help you plan a garden that'll be brimming with fresh veggies this summer.
Tip #1: Be Water-Wise
Water is a precious resource, so when you're designing a garden, consider options for collecting or reusing water that would normally be "wasted." Set up a rainwater collection system or reuse bathwater with a graywater recycling system. Once you've collected the water, remember that the best time to give plants a drink is in the morning, when less will be lost to evaporation.
