Thursday night Paul Cox was in town, and we went on a whim.....he had some surprising insights, and some things fell into place for me.
Time to buy a new copy of ANOF----gave mine to the village clerk. hopefully a seed planted.
More storms, so I still haven't had to water. I'm pretty disgusted though, we had suspected a water leak, and it's confirmed. We used more than 20,000 gallons last month, unless the first reading is incorrect. I'll have the village double check the reading on Monday. After all the care I've taken not to waste water on the garden, I really thought that we'd get by with just the base rate for water....drat and double drat...time to make some beads and time to do some digging!
