Oh, I whined about having to lug water to the deck to keep the veg garden going, but this year that problem is GONE. In its place there's a crimp-proof garden hose that's fed from the spigot below through a hole drilled in the deck. It's turned on and ready to go all the time, with no leaking. Brilliant! Watering the pots you saw in the last post takes all of five minutes now.
