We spent the better part of Saturday repairing the drip system in my backyard. This was a task that could not be put off much longer. With the days of rain drying up and Summer on the way my plants would soon be suffering badly. Of course I would not even be in this situation if Ronin never joined the Family F. Lucky for me, Big Sis came down to talk me through it and give me an assist.
Once I was confident that water was being delivered to my plants again, I trekked to the local nursery for a few new plants. It seems that dogs are not the only gardener’s curse. It seems that the boy’s soccer and football games were in need of some sacrificial plants. The places were water was now being delivered to empty spaces told it all.
At the nursery I discovered a whole section that was dedicated to dog food and toys. I was surprised, though only for a second or two. Then I remembered that dogs (along with active boys) are one of the driving forces for needing to buy new plants. It made perfect sense. I guess that my situation is not all that unusual after all.
The best part is that it saved me a trip to the pet store. With two large dogs, we go through the dog food faster than plants and drip systems.
