Re: Re: dried up gardens


I would need 3 timers.  Timers I could trust.  And I wonder if I would
"bother" to set the timer for the times when , oh, just this one little
shrub needs a drink and I'll just set the hose here for it until I finish
this other thing I'm doing....
I need discipline, is what I need.
