Re: Re: dried up gardens


It's really easy stuff to work with, Judy.

I think we're pretty much out of Dennis's sphere now. Sun's been out a couple of times. Still breezy and mostly overcast with a little rain now and then. No damage I've been able to see. Wind did blow the gourds out of the tree top, but the settled in on lower limbs. Probably lost the rest of the mango crop, but the squirrels will be happy with them on the ground.

Thanks Jim, sounds like just what I need. I see a trip to HD in my near
future. How's Dennis treating you?

Judy, both RainBird and DIG make single station battery-powered timers
that can be set to turn on and off a hose two or more times a day. If
you use Toro's blue-stripe poly-pipe rather than a hose, you can run
any number of drip lines or micro sprinklers off it. HD has all this
stuff.

Is there a timer available that can be set to water for a specific time

on that
timer for all my pots that need some water once or twice every day. I'm
wondering if I could set up a timer on a spigot to take care of a line
for
them while I'm on vacation. Anybody doing this?

Before I put the whole thing on a six station RainBird timer a couple
of years ago, Donna, I used battery operated RainBird timers that are
designed to attach to a hose bib and have the hose attached to them. I
suspect that for random use, they would drive one nuts having to
program them whenever you wanted to water something for an hour.

Gardena makes a mechanical water timer for about $25.00 that can be
set
from 5 to 120 minutes. Gardena makes good products; I think I'd try
it.

Yeah, this is exactly why I have ours on a timer. We don't have
"city
water"--have a well, so chlorine is not a problem and neither is a
sewer tax. But memory sure is; no way I could remember to water all
the
stuff that needs water and no way I'd want spend all that time doing
it
even if I could remember.

I hear ya Kitty. I have done the very same thing. Once I left the

Same here, but I keep trying. Twice however, made BIG mistake. Left
the
water running on the north fence area for something like 8 hours.
And
the other evening I set a sprayer on light spray to water at the
base
of
my Silver Fir and forgot and left it running for about 12 hours.
None
of
the palnts will be hurt by this as each overwatered area is near a
slope. In addition to all the intentional watering, I'm really
worried
about what my water charges will be this month. They also charge a
sewer
fee for all water. I think I should invest in good timers. The
ones I
had before I didn't trust and got rid of them. But as I get older
it
is
too easy to get distracted and I can't keep doing this.

Oh Pam...I have been emptying her pool near the new trees we
planted
and
all that red clover from the seeds you sent me. That yard is going
NUTS...the red clover has taken OVER. She eats it and LOVES it.
Last
night I was out trimming down my sun-fried iris "flags" and she
was
"helping" me. I trimmed them, and then she would go behind me and
make
sure there weren't any "left overs". Then she proceeded to trim
down
my
daylilies that are no longer blooming. She only "weeds" or "trims"
what
I'm working on. And she's pretty darn good at it.

Yes...she is a cutie pie. We go for our walk every single
evening.
When
my son was here we took her down to the ponds so she could
actually
paddle and swim. No deal. She doesn't like it when she can't see
in
the
water. A fish nibbled at her foot and she jumped straight up in
the
air,
ran on top of the water and landed in my lap, short of breath
and
scared
to death. I laughed so hard. Since then, she won't go in the
ponds,
only
on the edge. She is like ME..I only like chlorinated water...no
surprises, no sharks, no critters that will nibble on me. So
now...I
have to go get a bigger pool that she can swim in, but one with
a
stopper to let the water out because it's too heavy to lift and
empty!

Major bonding action going there m'dear! Can't wait to see her
in
October.
