Rainy day watering

Rainy day sprinklers

It's been so dry that we've started leaving the sprinklers on even when it storms. That extra tenth of an inch here and there doesn't amount to much.

But after we soaked each part of the garden Monday, Texas finally gave us back our rain.

One inch of wild-harvested water should keep most garden plants happy for a week. Time to turn off the sprinklers.
