Water, Water, Water... with Gilmour

Temperatures here at my Bedford, New York farm are expected to be in the mid-80s - about 20-degrees cooler than yesterday, but still no sign of any significant rain in the forecast. It's been such a dry summer that it's hard to keep all the gardens well-irrigated.

Because of the weather, the hoses and sprinklers have been very busy. One of my favorite sources is Gilmour, a Madison, Wisconsin-based company that’s been manufacturing hoses and other watering solutions for more than 65-years. I use several of their products at my home in New York and at Skylands in Maine. With so many trees, shrubs, and plants to maintain, it’s important we use only the best quality outdoor tools.
