Watering the garden at Level 5.

April 15th, 2007 at 08:57 am

I have always watered in the early morning at dawn. Now I have to water only after 4pm until 7pm with a bucket only. But I can water at anytime if I have grey water or tank water. As my tank has not arrived yet! We had no rain for a month now, so it will have no water in it until it rains next when does arrive. We are on a odd & even house numbers as before. So now I have to change my jobs around so I can water in the afternoon before sun goes down, that only gives me about one hour to water the whole area. Some plants only need watering once per week so I will do them on the odd day. As I only water twice per week now. I will have to change my strategy on which plants to water and when. With the view that we may not be able to use buckets or water our gardens at all when we get to the next level in about September at 15% dam water level. My daily water use is only 129 litres per day. So I am saving money on my water bill. $12.50 for 3 months is not bad!

BREAKFAST Muesli & Milk Coffee
LUNCH Macaroni & Cheese Fruit Coffee
DINNER Stewed Lentils & Tomato Sauce & coffee

    Those of us in my area take rain for granted because we seem to have it once a week. You help remind us that a large portion of the world has much less water. Thanks for reminding me to conserve what I have!

    Wow Kitty that's tough! We are still on Level 3 but only just. I have buckets in both our showers, we have a rainwater tank linked to drip irrigate our gardens and grass and DH has bought (but has yet to install) appropriate hose pipe so I can use my washing machine rinse water. (I have already changed to a non-phospherous (sp?) washing powder and haven't used softener in years, in anticipation of using the grey water).

    You are doing fantastic at conserving water! Our pool uses a bit with topping up but it's justified as we live right next to bushland so it is considered a Static Water Supply in the event of a bushfire.
