Your Call: How do you garden during a drought?
On today's Your Call we’ll talk about strategies for gardening using less water. Some landscapers advocate taking out water-guzzling lawns and putting in drought-resistant native plants. Will you be planting your garden differently this spring? And how are you going to water it? If you’re growing your own food, what crops do well on low moisture? And what about graywater? Join the conversation and bring your questions to the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and you.
