Trev recently bought a garden hose and fixed it up to hook onto our kitchen sink. The cats recoil in a combination of fear and curiosity as the giant green snake slithers along the kitchen floor and out the front door. As a result, we no longer have to go back and forth with the water pitcher 12 times every morning in the swampy D.C. heat. The plants think it’s a great idea too. My squash seedlings have grown from this:
And pretty soon I noticed the vines had taken root all across the brick path and had started invading the lavender’s space. Apparently they don’t know the hierarchy of the garden yet. (Lavender is queen.) I ordered and picked up some folding trellises at Home Depot and trained the long vines to go up.
