It’s HOT!

July 19th, 2008

It’s hot here in NE Ohio, in the 90’s. My poor plants are wilted, especially my hydrangeas (they’re not lovers of heat!).
Along with the heat, we haven’t had any rain in a while. That means it’s time to water.

I like to water by hand (no sprinklers for me unless the lawn needs a drink). It’s a great bicep & shoulder workout (no weights for me during gardening season). I have a great French watering can I ordered from Gardeners Supply Company last year. I love it!

It’s perfectly balanced so even though it holds 3 gallons it doesn’t feel heavy. It also has a removable crown for easy cleaning (I like to put the crown on upside down, personal preference). I like it so much I think I may order another one (twice the workout in half the time).

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
