“My Veggies Wanna Drink”


(April 23, 2019)

lug* water to veg

tomorrow’s likely hotter

still love a good sweat

*(Whenever possible I tote five-gallon buckets of roof-caught rainwater rather than firing up the pump out back or – worse – turning on the water meter out front and letting the city charge me theoretical “sewer” fees based on metered water flow. Plenty of buckets and large impromptu “cisterns” all properly shielded from mosquitoes, but the frogs say that’s unfair as they like a good skeeter sammich or seven billion. The container garden needs pretty regular soppings, as do the seedling beds. We got rain promised – bywhom? weddermans-n-mams? – Friday and maybe again Sunday. I shall drink beer and find a bucket j.i.c. – purely precautionary, mind.)
