Diversity Rules!




One of my favorite things to do is to walk around the garden and see things in a new light. I can appreciate the variety of shapes, colors and textures, especially on these hot summer nights when it doesn't seem to cool down until way after dark and it's much too warm to do any real work. Most of what I grow takes very little care, as per the Florida-friendly principles. I do notice a marked improvement in the health and vigor of my plants when we get a good thunderstorm. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen too often around here. So, supplemental watering is in order. Those infamous rain barrels to the rescue!
