    It hasn't rained at my house for more than a month, with 90 to 100 degree heat.

    I am just trying to keep my tree from dying, I have given up on the garden. Nothing is growing.

    I am using an old trick my mother told me about. Take an empty milk carton and poke a small hole in the bottom. It lets the water out slowly right against the tree trunk. I go out a few times a day and refill the bottle.

    Do you practice any rain gathering or water storage techniques?

    I don't remember it ever being this bad so early in the summer. I've looked at making a rain barrel, do you have one and how does it work for you?

    :hello: indya ... Welcome Home ... :wave: :wave: :wave:

    What a nice surprise! :) ... seeing you back has brought a smile to my face! ... :love:

    I don't have any watering suggestions, but i wonder what kind of garden do you have?

    Is it a flower garden or vegetables or both?! What's in it, if you don't mind sharing.

    Looking forward to reading more of you.

    Much Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
