No, I’m not complaining about all the rain we’ve had or even the recent floods. I want to show you how we water Missy’s garden.
During the drought (which now seems so much in the past but was only a couple of years ago) we had very strict water restrictions and were encouraged to install rainwater tanks. We have three tanks and they hold more than enough water to look after the garden. Even though there is no longer a drought, the price of water has increased so having your own water supply has become a permanent benefit.
The latest addition has been a tap in my vege plot and one near Chookie World with a sink for washing your hands. That brings the total to nine taps from the tanks. Plus there are 4 connected to town water on the house but we rarely use these. Of course we can’t use all the taps all at once. The pumps aren’t that strong, but two or even three at a time is no problem.
It has made such a difference being able to water the garden with ease. With such a large garden using buckets and watering cans was back breaking work before we had this setup.
