Response to Erich Bloodaxe BSN (Reply #6)

7. I have a verbeneum, native to this area, but took

a beating this winter. It had lots of dead branches in it. I pruned them out today and watered it. Am hoping that it will come back. There's new growth at the base. I hope it makes it because the shrub puts out some really lovely white blossoms all summer.

We didn't get the veggie garden in until last Saturday. I put in a much smaller garden this year since we were still on drought footing, althought that is easing a bit for now. My husband watered the green beans so much last year. We had plenty to harvest but by the time the water bill was all settled, those were some of the most expensive beans we've ever eaten.
