If you live in California then you know it’s warm and dry. I type these words as I sit on my patio, letting the sprinklers run in my dry and dusty backyard. Here is my view:
I’ve left the leaves on the ground to hold in some moisture and hold down the dust. Normally, by late January, the leaves are long gone and the winter grasses have filled in the backyard, but not this year. So, I’m watering to keep the dust down. This is not helping with my 20 percent water conservation. Tomorrow I will run the sprinklers in the front yard.
