When you make the move to a new place, you ask a lot of questions.
We certainly did and were quite happy with the answers we received when Sechelt made the cut for our new home.
The problem is we didnâ€™t really think to ask one really important question.
Will there be enough water to do what we want to do?
See, we live in a fucking rain forest â€” who would have thought having access to enough water would be a question weâ€™d even have to consider? We sure didnâ€™t.
With stage 4 water restrictions, the plants in the garden are drying up and dying. We are doing our best to harvest and put away as much as we can to save on the waste. But, my heart breaks as the beans, peas, kale, and strawberry plants turn to yellow.
Of course, zucchini continues to grow quite well.
P.S. – Yes, we use grey water. Yes, we have buckets sitting in the shower and sink. Yes, every time we turn on the tap, we are aware. Yes, we let it mellow if it is yellow. Yes, we shower in less time, wash our clothes less often, and yes… we know how privileged our life is. Which is one reason, we can complain.
