I used to think gardening was relegated to Saturdays. Well some people who live here think it is. I’ve found it is an everyday event. I walk out to the garden and the birds are in the trees wondering if I am putting the sprinkler out for their baths. Of course it is for their bath what other reason could it be?
California is now on water restrictions. Last week I went to the hardware store and bought 2 – 50 foot soaker hoses. I set them in the yard to rest and uncoil. I wound it in and around the vegetables in the garden. At first I though it didn’t do much but after the hose was turned off and I looked a little later the soil looked like it had all been covered. The good part it was passive, I connected the hose, turned it on, set the timer and walked away.
During this time Stretch, our Turtle kept a good eye on me.
