After a spring and summer of rain, Palmyra is in drought. Everything but the crabgrass went dormant.
The Forsythia bushes were wilting. As there was no rain in the forecast, I had to water. Easier said than done . There was a hole in the hose.
I tried electrical tape and then duct tape.
The hose still leaked, but carried enough water to let the hose work.
After watering, I tried to repair the hose, but the kit was for 5/8 to 3/4, and this hose was under 1/2. I ordered a 1/2 inch repair kit, because I know I will need to water again.
