Great new watering gadget
I have lots of container plants, and I hate dragging heavy hoses around, and winding them back up again. I recently found a gadget at Home Depot called the Ames Water Genie. It's a thin retractable 40' hose that fits inside what looks like a watering can. The spout of the "can" can either shower or jet, and the hose pulls out or retracts as you walk it to or away from your faucet. I wish it had a bit longer reach, but for a patio or deck it's great. I hope it holds up over the long term.
