Tomato on right and tomatillo on left on 7-13-12. Notice leaves go all the way to the ground on this tomato. I rotated it to a new location this year. Last year's tomatoes had lots of foliar leaf blight.

My Garden on July 13, 2012

As I walked around my yard last night, I saw drastic differences between plants grown in irrigation and those enduring the drought. The irrigated portions are lush and healthy. I especially admire the cherry pie rose, banana trees, cardinal climber vines, zinnias, lobelia, vinca, herbs, and so much more! Most amazing is our irrigated lawn. If you've followed my posts over the past year or so, you know that I had to completely redo our front and back yard last year. The results are so wonderful. Good think I like to mow!

I'll do another post to show plants in my yard that are suffering from the drought. So sad!
