Rain

‍‍ח אב ה תשסט - Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Though it wasn’t much, it did rain a bit this afternoon. I think I’m going to skip tomorrow morning’s watering.

Even though I watered this morning, it’s raining this evening. Oh well–guess a little bit extra can’t hurt. What a weird Denver-July this has been!

Watering

‍‍ז אב ה תשסט - Monday, July 27th, 2009

I got the new sprinkler installed. It’s nothing special but it should do what I want. I had a little bit of trouble getting it working at first (what a surprise… I hate this things!) but after playing with it for a few minutes I was able to get it working. 20-minutes per side and […]

Watering

‍‍ג אב ה תשסט - Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Before leaving for the weekend I brought the basil in and watered it. I pinched off a few flowers that were growing on it. I hope it does well while we’re away. I also hope it rains or at least isn’t too hot so our grass is still green when we return. Not sure when […]

Watering

‍‍ג אב ה תשסט - Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I set the new sprinkler out this morning and it was so noisy that it woke Dana. It’s definitely going back. I’d rather have a quiet sprinkler that soaks my lawn in the 40 minutes I run it than one that pounds the house and doesn’t get much water to any one spot. How frustrating! […]

There was quite a storm this evening. Sheets of water covered the yard. Nice how this worked out to guarantee that I wouldn’t have to water the next morning.

I went to the hardware store and picked up a new sprinkler. It’s one of those pulse sprinklers that make that ticking sound like you see on golf courses. The entire unit is metal which is annoying because it looks too valuable to leave out but which should stand up to vandalism (though if I […]

Vandal!

‍‍כו תמוז ה תשסט - Friday, July 17th, 2009

When I came home from work today I found that someone has vandalized my sprinkler. It wasn’t the best sprinkler in the world but someone clearly came onto my property and broke it. It looks like someone snapped it clean in half. They also moved the hose. It almost looks like they didn’t like the […]

Looks like nature took care of the watering for me. Nice to get to skip watering tomorrow.

Basil plants

‍‍כד תמוז ה תשסט - Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

I found, after a quick search of the net, that Basil plants watered once a week thrive. Further, that basil plants like a lot of sun. After I purchased my basil plants and potted them in the potter Dana bought for my birthday a year ago, I figured water them onceĀ  a week and put […]
