RE: reclaimed water

there has been a lot of talk here about gardeners and farmers switching to
all cool-season crops and abandoning the thirsty summer crops.  it's been
three difficult drought summers for us, and we have a mild enough winter
that it makes sense to grow crops while the soil has more available moisture
and plant stress is lower.

Subject: RE: [cg] reclaimed water


This weekend we had some Israeli visitors who were bemused by our blithe,
turn -on- the- garden- hose NYC watering practices ( we have water piped
into out garden from the NYC system courtesy of the NY Parks Dept.) 

Our visitors, a back-up  El Al  crew in for  UN festivities and former Negev
desert farmers, said that what we had spritzed in that afternoon would have
been sufficient to handle a decent crop of orange trees for a week using
their  drop-by-drop root irrigation systems. 

This may have been a bit of  wry Israeli kibbutz  humor  but it gave us all
pause for thought. Water is gold.

Happy gardening,
