HT to my husband who saw this commercial and brought it to my attention. We’re getting carpeted with snow by the first real winter storm I’ve seen in a while (last winter barely deserved the name), and I’ve been thinking about the garden. On my list of projects are:
- Finally solve my easeway problem by covering the whole thing with a stone-enclosed raised bed planted with a perennial that tolerates dry shade. I’m thinking hakonechloa, which does look great en masse.
- Fix the back flagstone pathway.
- Pull out all the ostrich ferns. Replace with …
- Do better containers.
- Make everything better—somehow.
For some reason, snowstorms make me think about the garden. Who knows if any of these blizzard-driven imaginings will come to pass? Probably not all of them, because I am not handy with hardscaping and will have to hire.
One modest thing I would really like is a decent hose, but such a thing might be even farther out of reach than the easeway solution. Amy posted about the pretty purple Dramm hoses, but they didn’t look much different than the green variety I wrestle with every day during a dry summer.
So—a pocket hose? Anybody ever used one?Posted by Elizabeth Licata on December 27, 2012 at 8:00 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
