|See where the garden watering ends and the dry begins?|
I usually only water my vege garden. The roses get an occassional splash when in flower, but mostly everything else gets left to fend for itself. If it doesn't feed me, it can wait for rain. But our lawn is looking very sad. We don't eat it, that's for sure, so I guess in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter. But my guinea pigs do. And they can wreak havoc on a healthy lawn. So I've been deliberately letting the edges round the garden get some water, instead of my usual pedantic creed of keeping it all for the veges. The piggies are getting carrot ends, apple cores, and long grass cut from around the trees to supplement their feed. I'm moving the cage twice a day.
And we've just started bucketing water onto our lawn.
