Nothing crazy about it. Just a necessary adoption.

You are really going to be sad when you find out the mammoth agricultural areas of the SW are all supported by unnatural water sources.
Nothing sad about that, whatever 'unnatural' means.. Weird that you would think so.

It's still crazy to me that people water their lil piece of the desert. There's hundreds of miles of cacti in the SW US that no one waters, naturally or unnaturally.

You think we all have dirt and barrel cactus in our yards?
There are many types drought friendly/xeri-scape plants but they still require some water.
