No mow in Palmyra

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.
