My new faucet

Well it's official. This was the second driest summer on record here on the Vineyard. Lots of thunderstorms would swell up on the mainland in the afternoons, but they never made it across the water. Yesterday when I composted the garlic beds in preparation for fall planting, I was turning what amounted to dust.

So it was appropriate that yesterday I received the last of my birthday presents ... a faucet INSIDE the garden gate. Matt from Hide-a-Hose came by and in no time had my faucet in place. It is amazing how this equipment works. It has a big slicing blade that slices through the lawn and simultaneously drags the 3/8 inch pipe into place.

That is going to come in quite handy.

Installing a faucet inside your garden is a great idea because you really need it to water the plants and to keep your lawn in good shape. It’s also handy since it will make work faster and easier. Well, it’s been almost six years, so I hope your faucet is still working. :)
