I remember running under the sprinkler when I was a kid. Kids these days wouldn’t know what to do with a sprinkler if it bit them on the arse.

This drought and Sydney’s level 3 water restrictions really, really suck.

I could barely contain my excitement last week when I saw a real sprinkler in action. This is on a farm 6 hours west of Sydney, living off rain and bore water. They still have enough water to give their grass a drink at the end of the day.

One thought on “And I feel guilty watering my dying plants

  1. Dont feel guilty – Industrial and commercial water users use far more water than residential users, and water use inside the home is more of a problem than outdoor watering.
    Something you can do though is attach a hose to your washing machine or dishwasher hose outlet and water the plants with that. I have been watering with that water soap and all for a couple of months and the plants are fine. Well they are still a bit dry but apart from that growing well.
