    I was actually looking at one of those earlier today. May have to see if they want one of those hooked up. My luck though, someone would shut off the valve. Can't have anything nice over there.

    Actually a big chunk of ice works great as a cheap way to drip irrigate, freeze like a quart or a half gallon of water and then set that thing out there by the plant, as it melts the water slowly seeps into the ground.

    Good idea. I just use the timers because it lets me sleep at night! Knowing all of the plants have gotten watered evenly and such. That time above amazingly only cost 50 bucks! The soaker hose cost me about 7 bucks for 50'.

    My thoughts also,, in the heat of July and August you would need 5k pounds of ice to make it last.

    1. Today I blew my clippings on your car so maybe you'll get the hint to not park there.
    2. I've been feeding your dog immodium since April.
    3. I know I said 10 yards of mulch, but you're right...get 5, what do I know?
    4. I'm glad you think your grass looks great when cut at 1"...but it's gonna be expensive for me to paint it green come July
    5. I'm gonna put all the dog crap on your sidewalk, so you can step in it and pretend it doesn't piss you off
    6. When you're not home sir...I hit on your wife
    7. When you come outside to talk to me, I consider running the blades over my foot, because my mangled foot is more interesting than anything you have to say
    8. Did you ever think the reason none of your neighbors like you is because you're a lunatic?
    9. I didn't really get behind schedule on Thursday, I really came on Friday because you said you'd be away.
    10. I bring my trash from home and put it in your can because you always have room.

    2. No i dont like getting my mower stuck in your yard while I fly over the handles because you won't fill in your yard do to your mutt digging.
    3. Clean your damn toys up before I get there.

    5. No I can't weed eat the cracks in the street because you're to lazy to spray them.
    6. Yes those dark brown lines are from me running through your yard after you've watered each day for 5 hrs. Hint hint.

    I swear I didn't intentionally run over those dog toys, I just didn't see them.
    What? No I didn't intentionally run my mower tire through that giant pile of dog crap and go across your patio!
    No, I do not run like hell and always keep my earplugs in just to avoid you
