Late hose day

Gathering garden hoses

I left the hoses out longer than usual this year because I was debating watering a few more times. After all, the ground is bone dry.

Still, the few things still growing in the garden --- leafy greens, lettuce, broccoli, brussels sprouts --- seem to be doing okay despite the drought. And with nights hitting the low 20s, I was afraid the hoses were going to freeze and split. So I gathered them up and put them away. From now until spring, the garden will have to depend on rain.
