I live at the Jersey Shore.  When I established my gardens I had a job that allowed me time to mulch, compost and water whenever needed.  Now I am part of the seasonal economy, which means long hours during times of intense heat and no rain.  My gardens are suffering.  I have a small suburban plot, mostly for native producers (beach plums, figs), herbs and pollinators.  I am looking for suggestions for drought hardy food producers.  My herbs are doing well. Kale and collards can overwinter, but the seeds require tending when I have no time.  I am thinking, maybe some Mediterranean crops. but not sure what.  Winter winds can be brutal.

I think the Plants For a Future database may help with finding plants to use on your site.

Thank you.  This is an incredible resource.
 
I’m tired of walking, and will rest for a minute and grow some wheels. This is the promise of this tiny ad:
