Don't Forget to Water, Water, Water...

It takes a lot of close monitoring to stay on top of our watering tasks this time of year. We've had sporadic showers and thunderstorms, but sometimes they're just not enough to keep all the gardens well irrigated.

Because of this typical mid to late summer weather, our hoses and sprinklers are always very busy in July and August. One of my favorite sources for watering equipment is Gilmour, a Madison, Wisconsin-based company that’s been manufacturing hoses and other watering solutions since 1949. I use several of their products at my Bedford, New York farm and at Skylands, my home in Maine - they're durable, long-lasting, and easy to use. With so many trees, shrubs, and plants to maintain, it’s important we use only the best quality outdoor tools.
