OT: Drought/vacation watering

From: Janet Yang <jyang1@home.com>

    Thanks for relating your personal experience with gray water. You mentioned
using the rinse water from the washing machine--how about the wash water, with
all the detergent in it? I use much less detergent than it says on the package.
    The easiest way for me to fill the watering cans is to put them outside so
they'll be lower than the bathtub, then siphon the water into it. A
hand-operated siphon pump and a length of tubing costs about five dollars.

    I've got another problem: How to water my plants when we go away for ten
days. Now that we're on water restriction, my neighbor can't water for us. I
surely can't ask her to haul gray water over there.
    Any suggestions?
