Really enjoyed your article, I am a Master Gardener in Columbia County, the Lake City, FL area which is North Central Florida. Water is a precious commodity down here and our area is rich with rivers and springs. Because of the drought conditions we have been experiencing these past couple years, and the water shortages from up north (Georgia) and south (Southern Florida) we are sandwiched in and these two areas are now trying to "tap into" our resources.
Would it be possible to print off your article and for me to use in some of the presentations that I do for the public? I like it because it is brief and to the point, and has alot of good "common sense" information.
I don't know how that works or if I am allowed to or not.
Last year when we were going into a dry season, I was discussing watering plants with my mother and she suggested catching the water in the shower before it turns hot. A couple of months later, there was an article in the newspaper suggesting the same thing.
After talking to moma, I purchased 2 small buckes and explained what to do to my husband. To my suprise, he was all for it and does it everyday without a reminder. I had enough water to take care of my inside plants and to keep my outside plants from dying where there was no rain. We continue to do this, not just because of the plants but it also helps to keep the water bill down.
