I'm not going to say the word any more...just not gonna, can't make me. S'posed to have a chance of t-storms and r**n today, I turned on the soaker hose anyhow. I don't believe them anymore. Last time it started to r**n, I got all happy and even posted here about how it was a nice gentle soaking r**n. Which immediately caused it to stop. Now local water utilities are doing the "even/odd" restrictions on watering, sprinklers on even numbered sides today, which is us. Wonder if soaker hoses are included?
Drove past a house at about 12:30pm yesterday and just had to wonder. Green lush grass, the idiot was watering at noon, and apparently his sidewalk looked parched as well, 'cause he was really dousing it. Almost pulled over to let him know he was wasting his water/ money, then realized I'm in the company vehicle, gotta represent...sigh. Big red F-150 with the 1-800 number on the sides, really hard to miss.
Enough whining, at least the marigolds in the veggie bed are happy (they get watered daily by the soaker hose), and my Espada green beans are blowing out the door, outproducing the Blue Lake Bush 5 to 1! Weird thing is, the Japanese beetles (grrrrr...) are all over the Espada leaves, munching away, and the plants are still producing. Go figure!

Why can't it rain for like an hour or two every night while we are sleeping. Then there wouldn't ever be these problems! We are lucky that we don't get water restrictions. I think it must be because of the lake (?).
