Re: question for those used to gardening in heat!


Re > watering ( still by hand, carrying every gallon.
That can be a royal pain evenif it does build upper strength.  We had that
problem with a newly installed daylily bed.  It needed water to get
established - later it could take care of itself - but it was quite distant
from any water source.  I used a flat mesh cart with sides and filled it
with 6 five-gallon buckets.  filled the buckets and my 3gallon watering can
with water and trundled the whole thing down ther, sloshing as I traveled,
but not losing much.Then transferred the water from the buckets to the can
as needed.
