Not enough April showers to bring May flowers

As the flowers go to seed I empty some of the beds.


We haven't received much April rain so I am already consolidating and reducing my garden. I did add a couple of vegetable and herb plants to the area I will keep watering until the next rains but I am letting the flowers go to seed. The garden will be watered with what I can collect in the kitchen and shower since the rain tanks are almost empty. We harvest the aloe for burns and to use in soap and face cream, along with Rosemary. Some of the beets are ready and the herbs are always available.
