Re: Texas drought
Sorry to be late on this, I was out of town and came back to a very "active"
My subdivision was actually fairly lucky because we did not have water
restrictions until August. Now I am allowed to water my bushes, flowers, and
trees on Tuesdays and Thursdays from midnight to 10 am via drip irrigation,
hand-held hose, or watering can of less than five gallons. No watering lawns
at all. So my back yard looks like the aftermath of the nuclear holocaust,
and the front yard is right behind it.
I *was* running about 10 gallons of RO water every weekend, but my concience
won't allow me to anymore. So I buy distilled water from the grocery store
and only run RO water for top-offs and drinking. I reconstitute the distilled
water, of course, and add Tropica MasterGrow and potassium nitrate. My bushes
get an extra drink on the weekends because I water them with the dirty fish
This morning at 6 am it was 60 degrees F outside. I'm not sure that I know
how to act; where's my parka?
Oak Point, TX, where they recently transferred all the mosquito beds from
Lake Ray Roberts to Lake Lewsville. Thanks, guys!
