My friends in Alabama tell me that they've had the worse drought in a hundred years and so far there's no end in sight. The same goes for neighboring Georgia and other Southern states. Water restrictions have been in place for quite some time. Imagine not being able to water your garden or, even worse, if you're a farmer and you depend of it for your crops.
I should ask Phillip at Dirt Therapy how he's managed to keep his beautiful garden in Florence, Alabama alive.
In the meanwhile, please join me in saying a prayer for rain.
