It is hot. Very very hot. There has been no rain. I put in a rain barrel and the rain stopped the next day.
We have broken all of the watering rules. Do not water at midday: Had to, the plants were keeling over. Water deep not shallow: Did not have enough time, somebody needed to go to a soccer game. Mulch to retain moisture: I can't find time to do the dishes and laundry much less spread more mulch.
I love to water my garden by hand. Today I gave up. I set up the sprinkler, set the timer, and went back inside to finish some insane quilt project I committed to back in January.
Would someone like to come babysit the Monkey's so I can try to catch up?
