For some reason this has been the year that a few of our hoses have decided it is their time to go. Take for instance this last hose. I was trying to water my new garden and was wondering what was wrong with the water pressure, when oh my, I turned around and my hose looked like Popeye! I didn't even want to get near the thing in fear of it exploding! Well, Tom had already insisted that one just like this was junk so I quietly set it aside until all the men were gone....
That is when the real fun began. My daughter and I got up early one morning and got a nail and a hammer and we went to town on that hose. I mean we just put holes in it everywhere, it was really a pretty cool project because there is no right or wrong about it. I then just hooked it up to the water and watched it go.
By this time the boys were up, so I had to do my happy dance....Too bad Tom wasn't here to see it, but believe you me, he heard ALL about it-ha! And we all got to be in on the fun of making little adjustments to the dripper system while it was running and add a few holes here and there and get sprayed in the face when we removed the nail. We had a ball.
PS: When I went online to look for pics I remembered that I needed to tell you that I had a sprayer nozzle that I used to cap the end of my hose, but I do intend to get some sort of more permanent cap. When time and money permit....get things as you can is my motto, and make do with what you have.
