Watering

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

Did the morning watering this morning. 20-minutes per side. Looks like every other day is working out so far. We’ll see.

Watering

‍‍כב תמוז ה תשסט - Monday, July 13th, 2009

I’ve been trying to do the every other day thing. We had some rain over the weekend which helped but since then we’ve had thunder and at most a tiny drizzle for a couple of minutes but not enough to replace actual watering. As a result, it looks like this week will be an actual […]

Mowing

‍‍כא תמוז ה תשסט - Sunday, July 12th, 2009

The grass was looking a bit shabby so I decided to get out there for some mowing. I only mowed the front lawn but I also got the new string trimmer out and tried to use that. I followed the directions in the book to the letter and even used the oil that came with […]

Rain

‍‍יט תמוז ה תשסט - Friday, July 10th, 2009

Looks like this morning’s watering wasn’t necessary. It was another one of those wild and powerful and drenching rains. No watering tomorrow as a result.

I skipped the watering yesterday morning. I’m trying to transition into watering every other day in an effort to safe water (not that I use that much water to begin with). Did the usual 20-minutes per side.

Rain

‍‍טו תמוז ה תשסט - Monday, July 6th, 2009

It seems this morning’s watering was unnecessary as it is storming this evening. At least I can skip tomorrow morning’s watering (though I don’t think it’s supposed to rain tomorrow). What a strange year for weather this has been.

Rain

Another storm this afternoon. Word has it that this coming week is going to be warm and less chance for rain but at least for now I don’t have to do any watering.

Stakes, basil, and soil

‍‍יב תמוז ה תשסט - Friday, July 3rd, 2009

I decided to take a trip to Paulino’s┬áto pick up some supplies. Dana had been there once last year but I had never been there. It’s an unobtrusive building in the middle of a mostly industrial area north of Denver. I walked around the store for nearly an hour before I returned to the front […]
