Remember when I planted all that stuff outside the fence a while ago? Its doing GREAT! The alfalfa, clover, corn, and sunflowers are all springing up. So are the beans and onions that I put out there. Unfortunately - we haven't had much rain lately. We are overdue for a good soaking and we've got heat on the way.
"Out past the gate" is further than the hoses reach and I really needed to get those little bean sprouts watered. I remembered our pal over at The Gardener of Eden and how she talked about a water truck that comes to their community gardens. I figured.... maybe I can do something similar.
So ladies and gentlemen.... the water trolley.
This worked great! I ran the hose as far as I could out to the gate to prevent spilling the water.....then pulled the wagon out to the beans and gave them a good soaking.
Thanks, Robin, for the great idea! You saved my beans for sure.
Is everyone getting their gardens watered? The heat is gonna be a hotsy-totsy for sure this weekend!
Happy Thursday everyone!
