I am a Cheater

Ive been caught!!! Im confessing now to the whole wide world. You will all hate me. There is nothing worse than to be labeled a cheater…. so? Ladies? Gardening Guys? Is this forgivable???

Wow! Ive cheated and put my garden on water timers 🙂 Life is going to be so much easier. Have you done this? No longer do I need to waste time watering! Timers and soaker hoses are going to allow me to do other stuff around the garden and give me much needed valuable time.

    I force myself to water by hand because otherwise I never check on my plants, and I totally don't see how they're doing or when there's a problem. If you can get yourself into the garden to tend the plants without having to water, I say go the efficient route!

    I hear you! Im checking the garden daily so Im not too concerned, but if I can save 10, 20, 30 minutes each day that means an extra blog post, and extra fix to the house, testing a new recipe, etc.

    Just adding in a soaker hose has really helped keep the weeds at bay. Weeding is never fun! So Im getting all the great benefits of home grown, with a lot less work. 🙂

    I looove that our watering system waters our plants automatically. We wouldn't be able to have a garden without it.

    The part that I don't like is that the pipes are underground and when we have a problem such as a leak….it is a big pain to find and fix.
