Question Post by Kathryn Pfaff

I'm wondering how everyone is changing your planting and summer dormancy plans to cope with the drought.  We just installed irrigation, which would allow us to cover crop or raise a few key plants over the summer, but I'm also concerned about not using too much water. On the other hand, we need to keep some water going in the beds to prevent the crusting and dust bowl conditions we have faced for years when we come back in the fall. I am really undecided how to manage this garden this summer. Thoughts?
