As I say almost every August, where does the time go? Seemed like only last week I was planting lettuce seeds and creating a new garden bed. Now we start into the dog days of August. Pretty much the only thing we need to worry about this month is to keep up with the weeding and slug control and be diligent about the watering.

We had talked a few weeks ago about irrigation. I mentioned that I prefer hand watering my gardens with a hose or watering can because that is the best time for me to really look at each and every plant and assess their health. I give each plant the water only it needs and make sure the roots are being soaked. But hand watering is not practical for everyone and so I want to talk this week about some alternatives.
