Ask the techy men about this contraption. If it were up to me and I lived closer I would hand water, but I know that would take up a lot of time. So an efficient watering timer was necessary :) It is hokes up to the faucet and the soaker hose. It will soak the soil for I think forty minutes in the morning and evening.
I think the Carrots and the Zinnias we planted froze in the ground!!! Duds.The sunflowers are popping up and for sure the lettuce and kale are loving being in the ground but we may have to re-plant a few things. Rrrrr!
