The gardening this year has been pretty much limited to planters; since the house project is still creeping along (progress really IS happening, it just doesn’t seem like there’s much movement), most other growing things have had to fend for themselves. The daylilies seem to be thriving on the neglect, but if I leave things alone too long, I’m afraid the hostas may be crowded out by overly enthusiastic ferns and coneflowers!
We haven’t had much rain lately, so the plants need to be watered every day. As we have a steady supply of milk jugs, I decided to try one as a a drip waterer. It works very well providing there’s enough space next to the plant to set the jug. The original version had 7-8 holes (hot ice pick), but the flow was too fast so I taped over a few; 4-5 holes seems to be about right 😉
