I’m next to useless when it comes to engineering solutions that require hard work. The configuration of my garden this year is going to make water very difficult. I have to drag the hose into the garden and tightrope walk between the narrow paths, guiding the hose carefully behind me so as not to sweep away the rows. Once there are actually plants… yikes.
So I’ve been imagining a soaker hose solution. I actually put in the first step of the solution. I got a faucet extension and put it in the dirt. I just need to run a hose from the house underground (only about 12 feet) hook it up, and then attach a few soaker hoses to the faucet. I’m stuck in do-nothing-else mode because I’m fraidy scared now to try and figure out the layout for the soaker hoses. I just need to dive in and do it!
The first step… guard dog and faucet extender
