Friday Favorite: The Truck

July 15th, 2016

We have this old red truck that we got with this property, in the winter it keeps the snow off the driveway. In the summer it is pressed into service hauling water for the back garden.

We fill a 100 gallon tank in the bed and I use it to fill waterings cans, which I haul to the garden to water things. I should think about buying a few more hoses so I can reach the garden from the spigots on the house, but until then we’ll use the trusty old truck. It’s actually a good way to run it weekly in the summer.

Do you have any garden areas out of reach of your hoses? How do you water them?

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!
