Watering Inside the Lines

Do you keep the almost dead, it has no leaves, plant (melon) that was in the little 6 pack and plant it anyway? Me too! I sprayed it with Die Bug, D.E. so that it wouldn't fall like the Caribou, and it's beginning to get it's leaves back.

Melissa, The Empress, writes that Life is Now, and I would like to say that it's like "right now". I was taking this picture of the twins, the cucumbers, there are two, and saw the hose and said to myself that I didn't have to move it, it was fine, it happens. The next moment I'm inside at the computer sharing about how much water I was using so I write about the drippers, and their concentric rings and trying to keep them inside the bed zones.

When I returned outside the hose had blown at what you can possibly make out as the lighter weakened area next to the nozzle. This was a fountain of 60 psi. It had been running for about 10 minutes or so in a lovely spray pattern that had to be stopped because there is no water play around here without the monitor. Then back I go, trying to keep the water inside the lines.

Thank you for visiting! To all of my gardening friends, Carry On!
