April Showers ...


...usually bring May flowers, but we've had so very little rain this month! We've been watering the vegetable garden with tap water from the garden hose, but rainwater produces the best results. We have two barrels located under the gutters to catch the rain and use it to water the potted plants on the porch and whatever else we can before it runs out, and it really does make a difference!

If the corn we planted this year is going to grow "as high as an elephant's eye," I think we are going to have to bite the bullet and buy some soaker hoses!

Til next time,

Mary
