Dry doesn't mean dead

XeriscapingThe gardening gals over at Garden Rant have arranged for a series of guest rants while they are about other business, and it is worth stopping by to hear the ranting opinions of others.

Today, Stacy Moore writes about xeriscaping and the misconceptions gardeners have about gardening without much water. That is doesn't mean a big Yucca plant and a lot of gravel. Considering the current Mid-Atlantic hot spell, it is a timely read!.

In another guest rant, Tom Alexander makes the point that cultivating marijuana is gardening no matter what the powers-that-be think of the crop.

About Susan Reimer
Susan Reimer has spent 16 years writing about raising kids - among other topics - in her column for The Baltimore Sun. And every time son Joseph or daughter Jessie passed another milestone - driver's license, college, wedding or a move to a new military duty station - she has planted another garden. Now she will be writing about those gardens - and yours - here on Garden Variety.

Susan isn't an expert gardener, but she wasn't an expert mother, either. Both - the kids and the gardens - seem to be doing well in spite of her.

She lives in Annapolis with her husband, Gary Mihoces, who loves to cut his grass but has noticed that there seems to be less of it every time the kids pass another milestone.
