Casa Quickie: Water Wise

Want to save some money on your water bill this Summer? A drip irrigation system or soaker hose can save 30-70 percent of the water that is used by overhead sprinkler systems. However, if you don't have a fancy irrigation system, you can still save water. If you water by hand, don't water foliage, but water at the base of the plants, where the plants will absorb the most water.

We have a soaker hose that goes all along our back fence and into our veggie garden. It's been really nice because it waters all the little privacy trees we're trying to grow and the flowers I have there. I think that may be the reason my tomato plants are gargantuan as well...On the other hand, we're a bit of an odd case; we live right next to a canal and get our irrigation water from it. We pay a flat fee to use that water, and have a set schedule to run our sprinklers (3 days a week).
