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.
many crops such a wheat barley, and vegetables, citrus fruits, olives and grapes these are the winter crops. these crop are winter ones. try one of this and hope fully you will get a good result
Location: Just off the Delaware Bay in NJ. Zone 7b
